A TEA PARTY THEN
I've posted this picture before of my mother pouring tea at a Women's Club luncheon. This was in Pomona, Calif. in the 50's. Note the gloves and hats.
At the meeting she probably talked about taking care of the needy, having better schools, better health care for everyone and things like that. She was very socially conscious. She cared about people.
She was president of the Democratic Club here in Fallbrook for several years.This is such a conservative community so being a Democrat was almost like being a Communist. She had a small group of fellow Democrats who were quite active. They were all senior citizens but traveled to the state convention in Sacramento and worked at voter registration at the county fair and anyplace else they were needed. She was a very responsible citizen.
My mother would be turning over in her grave if she could see what's happening now.
