Technical difficulties have kept this blog offline for awhile but please do enjoy this post that was written shortly after our “I Love Signet Campaign”.
All set and ready to go for our Elegant Tea Party
February 14 was the I LOVE SIGNET – Tea Party and Open House. After an intense month of Teachers, Interns and Board members coming together to reach Churches and International Agents in a never before attempted Recruiting Campaign, it was time to gather for fun.
The Signet Chapel heartily decorated for Valentine’s Day
The Signet Chapel was heartily decorated for Valentine ’s Day and children’s voices could be heard filled the air with squeals of delight throughout the day as winners were announced for raffle prizes. Not to be outdone, older groups were also well represented amongst the guests, parents and grandparents sitting, sipping tea or coffee and munching on delicious treats. The High Tea was a delectable success. All the food and floral arrangements were lovingly prepared and served by Friends of Signet, who I might add, also double as prayer warriors committed to fervent prayer over the school in their mission as Handmaidens of the Lord.
A variety of items were placed on display for our guests to shop… and shop they did!
Guests kept streaming in to partake of the food, fellowship and SHOPPING. The Elegant Shopping was indeed as THRIFTY as promised, and generous contributions were collected. The happy shoppers were doubly blessed, because, not only were they getting gently used treasures but they were seeding into our ministry, with their love and their giving.
Happy was the tone and joyous was the vibe, as overhead, the Elementary play the “Spyglass” was projected on the projection screen. It gave our guests a beautiful reminder of the current faces of Signet how creative and talented our young actors are.

What a day! We had several tours including the largest group of tours given this year, as interested guests toured the 3 storey school and asked questions regarding enrollment and rental of the property. I LOVE SIGNET was the refrain as we interfaced with Friends of Signet, Donors and Alumni in a most animated Signet Loving Day.

One of the volunteers commented, “What a sweet Presence was in the room, and how wonderful to see all the generations present for one cause!” Other guests were so happy to be there, many signed up for more information about the school.
To top it all… I believe I saw breaking through the clouds, God nodding, smiling, as He whispered, “Yes, I LOVE SIGNET! Don’t you?
