Scenic City Women’s Network announces the Sept. 26 Networking Luncheon at the Mountain City Club, 729 Chestnut St in Chattanooga.

This month's featured speaker is Rashelle Stafford, owner of Polly Claire’s Tea Room. Mrs. Stafford named the tearoom after her daughters, Polly and Claire. The girls work as servers, often hosting etiquette lessons and corporate talks for visiting groups. 

Polly Claire’s Tea Room opened September 2016, years after a two-year stay in London instilled Mrs. Stafford and her daughters with a love for afternoon tea. "The love of quiet conversation is found around the tables of her beautifully decorated tea room," organizers said.

Mrs. Stafford bought the historic Dent House, 6178 Adamson Circle. The mansion was built by railroad contractor Jarrett Dent in 1854. The Dent House is the last standing plantation home in Chattanooga. The facility is best remembered for its 90-year stead as the Bonny Oaks Children's Home.  "It is a perfect setting as Polly Claire’s Tea Room," organizers said.
Join SCWN as Rashelle Stafford tells her inspiring story.

Who are these idiots that come up with ways to waste money? Bike lanes? Really? How often are the ones on Shallowford at 153 being utilized? Never! I traveled Shallowford to and from ...

I am not a big fan of Bill Hagerty, the early front-runner to replace Lamar Alexander as Tennessee’s next Senator, because I dislike the thought of six more years with a partisan puppet.
