Crone Linda Brown planned a wonderful extra event for us this
month. Ten of us met in the parking lot of the Greenwood Inn in
Beaverton. Linda handed out driving instructions to the drivers
and appointed navigators of the three other cars. They did not
know the destination, but were told to follow the directions along a
very scenic route. Because the road had many twists and turns,
no one figured out the final destination until they actually arrived
in historic downtown McMinnville about 90 minutes later.
gals were instructed to park behind Oregon Stationers, then
come in the back entrance and walk to the right front of the store,
where they were greeted by Crone Linda and Queen Jill in
the Primrose Tea Room, a lovely corner of the stationery store.
tea room proprietors, Richard and his wife, prepared delicious lunches
for us, including flourless quiche, Shepherd's Pie, Queen Victoria
Soup, and incredible scones and lemon curd bars with cream cheese
frosting. It was elegant, relaxing and scrumptious.
we shopped and walked up and down the three or four main blocks of
McMinnville. The weather was good, the company great, and a
wonderful time was had by all.
I missed getting Ida in the group photos. Sorry, Ida...)
