Morning TEA With Friends at the Lakeville Public Library, Saturday, March 28 was a delight for all who participated. Rita Parisi entertained everyone as Mrs. Gordon, a 1908 middle class housewife telling stories of fashion, winter sights, and a hair parlor in Boston among other occurrences of the time period.
Mrs. Gordon's experiences of the time period were light hearted and humorous as well as delightful and curious. English Breakfast tea was flowing all morning in special china tea cups, sandwiches along with a
few sweet treats were served. Gentlmen and ladies of all ages were among the guests at this very special event.
