3rd annual Afternoon Tea at Naniboujou

3rd annual Afternoon Tea at Naniboujou presentation by Karen Halbersleben on September 9th from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.

This is a delightful semi-formal event—much like a garden party, so ladies and gentlemen, please wear a nice hat.  Like last year, we will have hats for rent if your wardrobe does not run to hats.

Join us for a fun-filled afternoon

· Naniboujou’s famous afternoon tea

· Fascinating talk by Karen Halbersleben

· Wear a lovely hat—rentals available

  Expect to have a lot of fun!
