At 12:15 p.m. on May 9, as part of the Civil War Day program, there will be a Southern Tea in the Steeple Building Museum, with homemade food, chinaware, and a lesson on 19th century teas, given by Ms. Liz Orton. This is a free program open to the public. However, to determine the number of place settings to create, we are taking reservations for this tea. Walk-ins will still be welcomed but reservations will have priority. To reserve your spot at this old-fashioned tea, please call 309 927-3899 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday May 8.
