EUGENE, Ore. — Couples, families, and friends gathered for a Valentine’s Day tea at the Shelton McMurphey Johnson House Sunday.
The house, run by a non-profit, hosts holiday gatherings to raise money for its educational programs. Sunday’s Valentine tea sold out weeks in advance.
The cooks for the event were dedicated volunteers, but regulars say the food was first class.
“Every time they do it, I go ‘oh my gosh, you can’t top this’ and they turn it around come up with something even more fabulous,” said Sarah E. Palmer, Shelton McMurphey Johnson House executive director.
The gathering also marked the start of the celebration of the house’s 125th anniversary.
