LEWISBURG — The Lewisburg Bicentennial Committee held a Ladies’ Tea on Saturday, April 7, with two tea times. Attendees were encourage to wear their bicentennial period clothing — the person with the best hat and bicentennial outfit for each tea received a gift.
Each guest to the tea received a Lewisburg Bicentennial Teacup as a memento.
The theme for the tea was “vintage wedding,” but there were costumes of all types at this bicentennial event. During the teas, there was a program entitled “Layers of History: Women’s Fashion During the War Between the States” which allowed those in attendance to learn a little more about bicentennial fashion.
According to organizers, 110 ladies attended, making it such a success people are already asking for another to be planned.
For the first teatime, Best Dress went to Maria Flagherty and Best Hat was worn by Nancy Huffman. For the second teatime, Best Dress was Erin Barnes and Robin Reed wore the Best Hat at the event.
Servers for the event were Everett Tritschuch, Roger Blankenship, BJ Sewert, and Jeff Sewert. The event itself was a collaboration between the Bicentennial Tea Committee, Delta Theta Tau, Ladies from the United Church of Christ, and Lewisburg Historical Society.
