The Jefferson Historical Society will host “Tea with Rosalind” on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 3 p.m. at the Old Jefferson Town House, 7 Gardiner Road, Jefferson. People are invited to take time from their busy schedules to indulge in the fashionable custom of afternoon tea. Story artist Rosalind Benton, from Philadelphia and Bath, and with family ties to Jefferson, will tell the story of tea with music, humor, and interesting facts, such as the fact that during the reign of England’s Charles II, his wife Catherine replaced beer with tea as the fashionable beverage for breakfast.
Guests are invited to dress up, if they wish — perhaps wear a fancy hat and maybe bring a very favorite tea cup that’s been sitting in the cabinet for years.
Seating is limited. Gentlemen are welcome. Delicious tidbits will be served. Reservations are required and tickets, which cost $15, must be paid for by Tuesday, Sept. 5. Call 549-5258 for more information and tickets.
