    Metro TALK: Spring Tea and Spring Rocco

    Metro TALK
    A community service of Orange Net News /O/N/N/

    YWCA Spring Tea set for May 2nd
    Tickets have gone on sale for the YWCA Central Orange County 6th Annual Spring Tea, The popular annual Spring fund raiser is scheduled for May 2nd. The afternoon’s activities include a silent auction, scholarship honoree award and a formal High Tea complete with traditional white starched linens and exquisite place settings. The Spring Tea raises money for the YWCA Central Orange County’s various outreach activities including its signature program, Beverly’s House – which serves young women emancipated from foster care and offers them a safe, caring, home-like environment where they can gain the skills necessary to achieve independence and was named in honor of Beverly Nestande, one of Orange’s most famous activists and volunteers.

    Each year volunteers at the Spring Tea vie to set the best tea table resulting in place settings as individual as their creators. Handmade tableware, Parisian poodles, 50’s kitsch and priceless Victorian china patterns have all been seen gracing tables in year’s past. This year’s event will include recognizing the guest with the most uniquely decorated table.

    Individual tickets are $60 and Table Sponsorships are available at a $480. Potential Table Decorators and event guests should contact the YWCA directly by calling 714-633-4950 or by emailing ywcacoc@hotmail.com. You can also learn more online at www.ywcacoc.org.

    Founded in 1858, the YWCA is a national women’s membership movement whose mission is to eliminate racism and empower women. The YWCA Central Orange County has been an active part of the community for over 85 years and currently serves women, girls and their families through a variety of outreach programs.

    Seating is limited and last year’s Spring Tea sold out well in advance so early reservations are encouraged.

    OC Weekly gives Steve Rocco 15 more minutes of fame
    Most community members in the Greater Orange Communities have moved on past former Orange Unified Trustee Steve Rocco, especially with the current fiscal state melt down threatening the educational programs in OUSD. We have to admit however, the April 1st issue of the OC Weekly with its ROCCO KETCHUP front page was too irresistible not to pick up. Staffers here all almost universally admit to looking around for witnesses when picking up the ketchup covered weekly (like picking up a World Weekly News at the super market checkout stand).

    What more entertainment could you want to relive the Rocco Years during an economic meltdown? OC Weekly reporter Nic Schou (admittedly showing at the Rocco trial up because he was subpoenaed) takes Greater Orange readers down memory lane with quotes not just from Rocco, but other subpoenaed audience members including: former OUSD Trustee Wes Poutsma; long-gone OUSD gadfly Kathy Moran; former Rocco opponent Phil Martinez; and long time anti-Rocco antagonist Chapman University Professor Fred Smoller. Better yet, the Rocco fame train continues this week as the trial continues after Rocco received a public defender.

    Miss the Ketchup Cover issue? Not to worry, read all about it in the privacy of your home…without witnesses….don’t forget to delete your computer History files after reading!
