All Creatures Great and Small in a Winter Wonderland ó a perfect theme for this yearís Silver Tea to be held on Thursday, Dec. 4th from 1:30 to 3:30 p. m. in the Crystal Dining Room of the historic Crescent Hotel. The room will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland with decorations, elegant tea tables, and hostesses in period costume. Creatures Great and Small will represent the animals of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, which is the recipient of donations from this yearís Silver Tea given by the women of St. James' Episcopal Church. The public is cordially invited. Admission is by donation.
This yearís tea continues a 48-year tradition by the women of St. Jamesí. The tea features heirloom silver pieces donated to the church by members. The tea originated so the women of St. Jamesí could share these beautiful pieces with the public and make a difference in the community by giving people a means to support non-profits. In recent years funds from the tea have benefited the Clear Spring School, Eureka Springs School of the Arts, St. Johnís Hospice Care, the Eureka Springs Carnegie Library, the Good Shepherd Humane Society, ECHO (Eureka Christian Health Outreach), Salvation Army, People Helping People, among others.
Chaired by Peggy Pot, assisted by Jane Acord, the tea will offer a beautiful variety of sandwiches and cookies along with coffee, tea, and punch. John Wiley will provide background Christmas music at the piano.
The event is made possible through the generous support of Elise Roenigk and the staff of the Crescent Hotel.

St. James' strives to be a welcoming and diverse community, offering a variety of worship, fellowship, education, and ministry opportunities.
