Approximately 82 club members and guests attended the annual Daffodil Tea on Tuesday, March 17, 2009, in Upper Lake.




UPPER LAKE – Eighty-two members and invited guests of the Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club celebrated the coming of spring and friendship with their annual "Daffodil Tea" which was held on Tuesday, March 17, at the Bachelor Valley Grange in Upper Lake.


Mistress of Ceremonies Helen Turley welcomed members and their guests who enjoyed a wonderful luncheon of tea sandwiches and desserts served by 15 hostess volunteers from the club.


Each hostess provided a beautiful china tea service at her table along with a floral arrangement consisting of daffodils and colorful spring flowers.


Club member Shirley Estrem was recognized for her outstanding, 5-foot-tall basket arrangements of daffodils and various spring greens. In addition, The Ka-Ba-Tin Redbud Arrangers provided more beauty with a large display of their floral arrangement talents.


Chairperson for the event, Linda Waterstraat, wishes to thank all of the table hostesses and many club members who helped in so many ways to once again make this event a memorable occasion.
