Purple Tea Party at the Deepwood Estate

Salem, Oregon, August 19, 2001

Deepwood Estate's Third Annual Tea in the Garden "Purple Party" was a smashing success.  About 250 women attended, many of them from Red Hat Society chapters.   Desserts and iced teas were served after the  special music by the Shirley, Shirley & Pat Trio, and then we heard our guest speaker, Jody Houghton, writer/illustrator/Queen Mother/Purple Lady.   Jody wrote an Americanized version of the poem, Warning, by Jenny Joseph, which includes lines about growing older with a sister and friend.   Great fun was had by all.
