INFO

"'Twas the Night Before Christmas..." begins the classic poem by Clement Moore, who was said to have written it in 1822 (it was officially published in 1823). That classic tale has since charmed children and adults for 200 years! St. Nick and his travels are the theme for this year's holiday tea.

Their annual holiday teas are a special treat to attend with friends or family. This year, expect to be entertained by a program put on by their hosts and hostesses while enjoying a spread of afternoon tea and treats. There will be a reading of "A Visit from St. Nicholas" and special entertainment of classic carols by a local clarinet trio, supplemented by a history of these tunes by curator Sarah. Guests will not only leave this tea full of holiday cheer, but also a sense of history and community!
