The members of the Women’s Fellowship group of Niccolls Memorial Presbyterian Church will host their annual Victorian Tea Room benefit luncheon on Saturday, February 9 from noon to 2 p.m. at the church.
The menu will include a choice of homemade soups, salads and rolls, Fair Trade gourmet teas, coffee and other beverages, and delicious homemade pastries. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches will be available for children.
The cost of a full meal is $8 and ala carte items will be available.
All proceeds from the event will be given to the Deacons of Niccolls Church to purchase items for the church’s food pantry and to help local families in need in other ways.
Winter is an especially difficult time financially for some area families and the Niccolls Deacons try to provide emergency help with items like heating fuel, prescriptions and transportation.
“The demands on their budget can be tremendous so the women’s group would like to take a little of the pressure off the wonderful work they do,”said Ruth Brussel, co-moderator of the Women’s Fellowship.
The church is located at 228 Crosby Blvd. next to the Old Forge Library. Transportation is available by calling the Community Transportation Service (CTS) at least a day in advance at (315) 369-2830 or Al Brussel at 369-6679.
