Queen of Hearts speaks out

I, the Queen of Hearts, read your April 24 issue of the Miner in which your nice article about the happenings on April 19 were reported. However, I would like to make a correction to the paragraph about the San Manuel Elks Lodge Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

Regrettably, your esteemed representative was unable to stay until the guests arrived. In fact, they arrived on time at 6 o’clock, including the Mad Hatter. The Queen of Hearts made her entrance shortly after their arrival, again at 6 o’clock. You see, all the clocks in the Kingdom of Hearts are set at 6 o’clock, so no one is ever truly late!

Regarding the decorations, the rooms were not as royally and extravagantly arranged and decorated as is my regal preference. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of beheading my kitchen staff and groundskeepers earlier that day and was forced to make do with my own efforts.

You see, I had the bad habit of ordering “off with their heads” whenever things were not going according to my commands, Thankfully, my remaining faithful herald and the March Hare were able to lend a hand with the preparations. Fortunately, the guests were kind enough to honor my request for them to help me break my habit by pleading for leniency whenever I pronounced that awful phrase. I am happy to announce that their efforts were completely successful by the end of the party!

We then settled down to enjoy our Queen of Hearts Jam Tarts with clotted cream, and a tasty trifle, which is truly a trifle to make, as it consists of whipped cream and powdered sugar with cake cubes folded in. Very delectable! Of course, we also had tea, coffee and a cherry-flavored beverage available.

The room was decorated in a happy spring theme, with flowers on the walls and ceilings, which was very appropriate, since we were, after all, in the March Hare’s rabbit hole. We filled 2 tables with guests and we all enjoyed a wonderful, magical afternoon filled with food, stories, games, contests, giggles and fun.

Of course, everyone departed with a royal chariot full of prizes and favors. Marissa Whitaker was the recipient of the prize for the craziest hat, which she constructed herself and was very delightful! Also, one of our guests won the raffle basket which included a huge chocolate bunny, a very large plush chick, two rabbit figurines and two porcelain egg ornaments. The event ended perfectly with the room filled with bubbles! How divine!

So please, dear Editor, pencil in the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party next year on your schedule. It will again be at the Elks Lodge in San Manuel. Feel free to extend the invitation to all those who receive your excellent publication!

The Queen of Hearts royally thanks you for granting me this opportunity to share with your illustrious readers regarding this lovely event.

Sincerely,

/s/ The Queen (AKA Deb Hunsecker)
