Grace Church’s ‘Tablescraps Luncheon’

The annual Grace Church in the Mountains “Tablescaps Luncheon” will be held from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, at the church in Waynesville.

Hosted by the Episcopal Women’s Group (ECW), the event will take place in the church’s Thatcher Hall as well as on the covered deck. The luncheon is a long-standing tradition and once again is expected to be a sold-out afternoon. The tickets are $20 per person. The net proceed will benefit ECW mission projects.

The program this year will feature renowned local artist Margaret Roberts who will have the attendees create a collage, which she will later complete, to be won by one of the lucky ticket holders. Gift baskets will be raffled off during the event with proceeds going to the homeless youth of Haywood County.

Tickets may be purchased from the church office, which is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The office phone number is 828.456.6029.
