LOVE THE HATS—Gloria Brown, Ruthie King, Ruby Wade and Kwajalein Ratliff

April 27 was a beautiful day to put on a beautiful hat, grab your fan and gloves, and attend the Afternoon Tea hosted by the Homewood AMEZ Senior Missionary Society. Guests enjoyed uplifting musical selections by the J.B. Martin Singers and a humorous skit that centered on the beauty of wearing beautiful “crowns” and having hattitude while wearing them.

The skit incorporated a hat fashion show where models wore hats that had a history. Some of the hats belonged to family members and were passed along to the wearer; one hat was purchased in London and was brought all the way back to Pittsburgh.

This year’s tea pourers were Blanche Butler, Holiday Memorial in Braddock, and Lillie Matthews, St. Mark AME. The hat models were Kwajalein Ratliff, Gloria Brown, Ruthie King, Ruby Wade, Minnie Gardner, Doris Strothers, Sheila Johnson Lillie Matthews and Toni Phinisee. Homewood AMEZ Church First Lady Debra Dennison did a beautiful job of sharing the occasion and welcome.

Members say the Afternoon Tea has an 11 year history and they plan to continue on as long as they are blessed to do so.
