A Great British Tea Party comes to Hillsboro

Tuesday early evening saw a crowd of Hillsboro community members gather in the Veteran’s Memorial Park, to indulge in British cuisine, drinks, and fellowship. With a crowd of over 50 people attending, some of the community’s ladies dressed up in British like style, wearing sun dresses and beautiful hats.

The tea party, benefitting the St. Joseph’s Memorial Foundation, is aiding with construction of the new Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics that continues to progress in leaps and bounds. The foundation is charged with raising funds for a capital campaign that has realized $1.831 Million of a 2-million-dollar goal.

Andrew Blackhawk Post 129 as always, was the host Legion Post.

A rainy Memorial Day did not deter the annual raising of flags honoring Veterans that are no longer walking Mother Earth. Veterans worked together in a ceremony paying respect to not only Native Veteran flags, but non-native Veteran flags as well.
