Charity League

welcomes members at tea

The peaceful music of Hawaii filled the air at the Membership Tea

hosted by the Burbank Chapter of National Charity League.

Using an "aloha" theme, Tea Chairwoman Nancy Baylon and her

committee turned Cabrini Hall at St. Francis Xavier Church into a

tropical paradise to welcome the chapter's newest members.


Surfboards lined the stage and palm trees graced the hall where

the tables were decorated with pineapple and orchid centerpieces.

The program began with a greeting from President Dana Brooks,

followed by an inspirational message given by Ticktockers Senior

Class President Ashley Kurges.

Introducing each new mother and daughter to the chapter's

membership was Vice President Jamie Reeves. Members who completed

their first year were congratulated by Provisional Chairwoman Linda

Lizotte and Ticktocker Coordinator Sharon Kurges.

Special guests attending were Ticktockers founding member Mary

Alice O'Connor, former national president Janet Killian, past chapter

presidents Sally Hooper and Natalia Oliver, Sustaining Chairwoman

Georgine Archer and the new Miss Teen Burbank and Charity League

member Samantha Fountain.

Helping on the tea committee were Yvonne Besvold, Christina

Nelson, May Khoury, Meghan Mize, Lee Gonsalves, Allyce Archie, Pat

and Alyssa Maskell, Martha Carrasco, Chantal Arellano and Gail and

Kelly Reinig.
