Members of the Big Walnut Area Historical Society will hold their Fifth Annual Mothers and Daughters Tea at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 3, in the Myers Inn Museum. Mothers and daughters of all ages are invited to dress up for high tea in a historic setting.
During the tea, Delaware County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau Executive Director Debbie Shatzer, who portrays Ohioan Lemonade Lucy, will provide historical entertainment. Lucy Ware Webb Hayes, who was born in Chillicothe, was a First Lady of the United States and the wife of President Rutherford B. Hayes.
Three courses including homemade savories, scones and sweets will be served with the tea and served by costumed historical society servers.
The cost of the tea is $18 per person. Seating is limited so reservations are needed. Call Damon at 614-745-4375 to make reservations. Funds from the tea go toward the upkeep of the Myers Inn Museum.
The Myers Inn Museum is located on the corner of Granville and South Columbus Street facing the southwest corner of historic Sunbury Village Square. The Museum is open from 12 noon until 3 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays; and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Admission to the museum is by donation.
