Mrs. Elsie “Gladys” Goins was honored recently with an outside Garden Tea at her home for her 86th birthday. The hostesses for the occasion were her daughters Sandra Scott, Bonnie Shelton, and Carolyn Transou.

More than 40 guests visited Mrs. Goins under the shade trees, ate delicious refreshments, and sipped on lemonade, flavored teas and cold ice water.

Dishes were used by the guests that Mrs. Goins has had since the 50s. Her wedding photo graced the serving table. Family, neighbors, friends, and church sisters and brothers wished Mrs. Goins a very Happy Birthday.

Bonnie Shelton greeted guests as they arrived and directed them to the birthday tea. Carolyn Transou gave the invocation for the blessings of her Mother’s life. Sandra Scott presented the guests with fall cutting boards as they departed. Mrs. Goins enjoyed her Tea so much and her guests wished her many more birthdays.
