Tea Time For Docent Emeriti

Sharing Sweets and the Successes of Colby's Docents

“At first I wondered if I would be a good fit for this project. I am a person from the community who is old enough to be the grandmother of the students involved. But the more I worked with the girls and listened to their conversations, the more I enjoyed myself. I realized we were similar as well as different.”
