Valentine Tea Take Away Fundraiser
Our popular annual Valentine Tea will be held again this year as a take home version. Instead of having tea together at the firehouse we will have a take away version with the same delicious tea choices that you can have at home! Tickets are $15 that will include your choice of tea and tea sandwiches with an assortment of cookie desserts. Tickets for the Sat, Feb 3rd event can be purchased at the library during regular hours. For more information call or email the library.
