Laurie Potter and her daughter Alyssa Potter enjoy cups of tea at a National Charity League event last month.
On November 12, the Coppell Chapter of National Charity League Inc. held its annual Mother-Daughter Tea where 222 members turned out for a “Mad Hatter” themed event at Las Colinas Country Club. The Tea is a long-standing NCL Inc. tradition which began in 1948. At that time, the founders of NCL, Inc. decided the Tea would be the signature event to celebrate the art of entertaining, practice the art of etiquette through cultural enrichment and cultivate the art of civility and respect. Today, chapters around the country continue to celebrate with an annual Tea.
NCL Inc. is dedicated to its mission of fostering mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development, and cultural experiences. The NCL Inc., Coppell Chapter is dedicated to the development of members as strong community leaders and consistently strives to improve local communities and beyond through hands-on volunteerism. The Coppell group has donated approximately 6600 hours of service since forming in May 2016.
In the spirit of service over the holidays, the members of the Coppell Chapter of NCL, Inc. will be found assisting with the Christmas in Coppell Home Tour, Old Town Coppell Vintage Christmas, Metrocrest Holiday Store toy and food distribution, Snowball Express Walk of Gratitude, visiting with residents of Vista Ridge Nursing Center and decorating their facility for Christmas.
