Elementary school film from the seventies about children and elderly lady's party

I’m looking for a short drama I saw as a child in school in the early seventies about an elderly woman who lived alone in a big house I think somewhere in the southern US. As I remember it, she invited some local girls to a (tea?) party and they reluctantly accepted. The elderly woman spends a lot of time preparing it bringing out her fine china and making treats. But at the end, they stood her up. I can still remember the look of disappointment of that old lady waiting after going to all that trouble, when none of the children arrive. So one of the girls with a conscience babysitting her little brother changes her mind at the last minute and takes him to the party. It was in the same vein as Peege (1973), The Shopping Bag Lady (1976) or Le haricot (The String Bean) (1962) teaching children about the values of the elderly. Any help would be appreciated. I tried with no success. Thanks in advance.
