The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

AAUW Scholarship Tea

My mom is involved in the group AAUW (American Association of University Women) and each year they host a scholarship tea for several recipients. My mom has had an active part in the tea each year. This year, with the tea falling on Mother's Day, my mom purchased a table for 6 of us, and we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon! My mom, myself, my friend Kim, her mother Linda, my mom's neighbor Linda, and our friend Crystal were all able to attend. We enjoyed tea, sandwhiches, desserts,and darling handpainted miniature tea cups to take home. The event was held at the Kelly Griggs Museum in Red Bluff, and our group was fortunate enough to get a privately led tour of the historic home. You can see the beautiful wallpaper and artifacts in some of the photos!
