Tea fundraiser a hit for Keizer library

The Keizer Community Library held its annual fundraiser, Afternoon Tea at the Library, at the Keizer Heritage Center on Sunday, Feb. 19. About 80 people attended the event which included tea, a light tea time menu, live music and readings from Oregon poet Sue Patterson

Home-schooled children acted as servers for the tea. Violinist Martha Hughes entertained as the attendees found their tables, bid in a silent auction and inspected raffle items.

Four generations of the McCarty family were in attendance. Marie McCarty, a former library volunteer was joined by her daughter Kathleen LaMear, granddaughter Amy Thomas and great-granddaughter Sadie Martin.

The tea raised more than $3,500 which will be used for library operations.
