Local seniors enjoy 48th Senior Citizens Tea aboard MCAS Beaufort
The Military’ Spouses’ Club at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort has been celebrating the holidays by hosting the Senior Citizens’ Tea since 1968, and this year’s 48th edition of the time honored tradition was enjoyed by more than 200 local seniors on Sunday, many from local assisted living and nursing facilities.
Attendees were each escorted inside by Marines in their dress blues, and everyone enjoyed lots of holiday cheer including tea (of course), as well as sandwiches, cookies and pastries and more all while listening to wonderful performances by the Beaufort Harbormasters, cheerleaders and lots more.
Another item on the menu was honor. Organizers plan the event every year as a special way of thanking the local community for their long-standing support of the Beaufort South Carolina Military Tri-Command, and to celebrate Beaufort’s local senior citizens and our Country’s greatest generation.
