Loraine and Eunice Funk family to be recognized during Chaddock’s Rose Tea on Sunday


QUINCY — Chaddock’s annual Rose Tea begins at 2 p.m. Sunday Sept. 10, on the Chaddock campus, 205 S. 24th.

The Rose Tea is Chaddock’s biggest event of the year and is a “garden party” tradition dating back to the early 1900s. This year’s event will celebrate Chaddock’s 170th anniversary with refreshments, activities and more.

Another highlight of this year’s event will be the presentation of the Harry and Carlene Geisler Friend of Children Award to the Loraine and Eunice Funk family. They have made a positive difference in the lives of children at Chaddock and throughout the area for generations. Whether as a teacher, board member, supporter or volunteer, the lives of countless children have been improved through their efforts.

The Rose Tea is free to attend, but donations are encouraged. All proceeds will benefit the programs and services offered by the Chaddock Family of Organizations.
