Seniors and Scones

Blog|Jennifer Davis

Our second small group activity is very near and dear to my heart, as it’s one of my favorite things to do. We took our Seniors to an afternoon high tea at Sip Tea Room in San Francisco on Thursday, May 9th. We had a total of nine ladies attend this activity, and they were all delighted to come out and enjoy an afternoon of tea and nibbles.

We started out by enjoying two preselected pots of tea: English Breakfast (caffeinated) and Honeybush (herbal). I was expecting a three-tiered display of sandwiches, scones, and sweets. However, we were pleasantly surprised as each one of us received our own individual plate of treats.

We each felt so special! The tea room had something for everyone. Once everyone arrived, we all started chatting with each other on numerous topics.

The bites were so tasty, some of the sandwiches we enjoyed were egg salad, fig preserves and green apple with sharp cheese. Our scones were filled with currants and served with lemon curd, clotted cream, and raspberry jam.

Since that upcoming Sunday was Mother’s Day, we asked the table what each person’s plans were to celebrate the special day. Coincidently, we were surrounded by books, which provided the perfect opportunity for us to introduce our upcoming Senior Book Club on Tuesday, June 25.

Everyone departed with a big smile and some leftover bites in-hand, grateful for the afternoon of treats and companionship.
