Officers’ Spouses Club hosts 43rd Senior Citizens Tea

1 min read

For more than 40 years, the Senior Citizens Tea has been held during the holidays to honor the Lowcountry’s seniors and members of the U.S. military’s greatest generation. The tea, hosted by the Officers’ Spouses Club at the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, is a special way of thanking the community for their long-standing support for the Beaufort South Carolina Military Tri-Command.
In a unique tradition, area seniors are transported from nursing homes, assisted living centers and private residences to the Officer’s Club at the air station. There, they are escorted by uniformed active duty Marine Corps and Naval Officers and served a traditional tea by the spouses of the officers. The festive afternoon includes food, refreshments, entertainment and raffle prize giveaways.
This year’s 43rd Senior Citizens Tea will be Sunday, Dec. 2, from 1 to 3 p.m. To make the tea a success, the Officers’ Spouses Club is accepting donations. A $30 “Sponsor a Senior” donation supports one individual; all donations over $30 include a listing in the donors section of the event program.
For more information about the tea or where to donate, call 843-305-2701 or email
