The Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta recently had a day of thanks to honor its volunteers, throwing the annual appreciation tea in high-society style.

On the menu: little sandwiches, yummy sweets and, of course, tea served with gratitude. The center is home to a team of more than 60 volunteers, led by Volunteer Coordinator Evelyne Bates, of Jupiter, who gave the Volunteer of the Year award to Kate Lennard for Lennard’s 600-plus hours of service. Shirley Kent and Theresa Wood each was honored for 300-plus volunteer hours, and Pam Ayres took home the Most Creative Hat award.

This year’s special Shine Award, reserved for an outstanding Lighthouse ArtCenter member, went to Scott Simmons and received a handmade silver pendant by jewelry artist Tracey Roedl.

In all, volunteers have donated more than 3,200 hours to the Lighthouse ArtCenter depends on the generous and dedicated help of dozens of community volunteers, who have logged more than 3,200 hours of service this year.
