12th Annual Summer Tea

It is almost time for this year’s Annual Summer Tea Fundraiser!

The 12th Annual Summer Tea will be held on Saturday, August 6th at noon at the VFW Post 8081 located at 3S371 Mignin Dr., Warrenville.

This year’s event will feature Annette Baldwin who will be portraying Civil War spy Elizabeth Van Lew. Van Lew was known as the leader of Richmond’s espionage network and was fueled by her passion to preserve the Union and see the end of slavery. Despite the fact that her family once held slaves, Van Lew worked tireless for the Union and Abolitionist causes and was one of the most productive spies of the Civil War.

Space is limited and seats are filled based on availability, contact Sara at info@warrenvillehistorical.org or (630) 393-4215 to purchase a ticket at $20.00 each.

The Summer Tea is supported by a Warrenville Hotel Motel Tax Fund Grant. The Summer Tea is a success each year thanks to our wonderful Museum Guild.

The Tea is wonderful time to enjoy company, creatively decorated tables and to support a good cause! Enjoy a couple of the beautiful tables decorated for recent teas.
