Fall Luncheon Tea
A SUCCESS

 

Enthusiastic support from Madison and nearby communities made the fall tea another big success.  The capacity number of guests included John Lynch, great great-grandson of James and Belle Kemper.  John and his wife travelled from Williamsburg to participate in the tea for the second time.

Sales of gift jars of Kemper Tea were brisk.  The same special blend of tea served to our guests was available for purchase.  Additional jars are available in the museum for you to purchase for hostess or Christmas gifts.  The jars are $5, and each sale supports the Madison County Historical Society.

The week following the tea, the Society was pleased to receive a donation of 17 antique English bone china tea cups and saucers from Kathy and Robert Ellis.  Kathy is a descendent of our local Crigler family and she is active in Germanna Foundation.  She has attended a number of Kemper Teas over the years.  Their generous donation also included a lovely antique demitasse set.

The Tea Team looks forward to the spring tea, scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, 2019.  A reminder will be in the spring newsletter, and we hope for another capacity number of guests.
