It was an English "high tea," complete with savory sandwiches, delectable scones with clotted cream, strawberries and dainty desserts.
But all this merriment had a serious purpose - the event raises education and scholarship funds for the South Shore Charter Chapter of the American Business Women's Association.
It was a fabulous afternoon put on by all, check out the photos...
