On Friday, October 24, 2014 was our Membership Event and members were asked to bring a guest and also bring or wear their favorite vintage Apron and a little story about it. Our Theme was “Aprons Strings Tie Cooks to the Past“. Our guest speakers were the “Tea Ladies” who talked was “My Grandmother’s Aprons”.
