Update 2/14/2013: The Member Teas are now sold out. Thank you for your interest.
Members are invited to connect with one another over a lovely afternoon tea. Choose from a selection of specialty teas while enjoying petite sandwiches, scones, desserts, and live harp music in the beautiful Founder's Room, the library of the former Morton family mansion.
“We find it elegant and charming,” says member Mary Athans, who reports that people of all ages attend. “It’s delightful, a thing from the past, and it’s just fun to be there. Usually it has been snowing, which adds lovely atmosphere. We just find it a highlight of our winter season.” Athans has brought groups of friends to past teas and has now made the event an annual tradition with her daughters.
Tea times are:
- Wednesday, February 6 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, February 13 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, February 20 at 12:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, February 27 at 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The cost is $40 or $45 with a glass of champagne for the toast. Seating is limited. For tickets, call 630-719-5008.
