St. Mary's held a women's tea fundraiser and residents in Walden Lake may have noticed smoke coming from their sewer ventilation stacks.
St. Mary’s Women’s Tea fundraiser
At St. Mary’s Community Church’s fifth annual Women’s Tea fundraiser it wasn’t just a cup that runneth over.
The July 8 event raised around $1,500 for the church to use in its various projects, including homeless outreach programs, tutoring services and more. It was open to the public and guests got to sip tea, dine together, play games and win prizes. Men were invited to this year’s event and, like the ladies, participated in a “best hat” contest.
Walden Lake residents may have spotted tendrils of smoke drifting out of the sewer ventilation stacks on their roofs this week. Utilities maintenance was conducting smoke testing on the mainline sewer system on a variety of streets from July 10 to July 12.
The smoke may have caused a pretty view, but it did not enter any of the homes unless there was a defect or they had a dried out p-trap.
