The Florida Public Library (FPL) will host the Sixth Annual Spring Tea on Sat., Jun. 8 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Seward Senior Center, located at 3 Cohen Cir. in Florida, NY. Guests will enjoy an afternoon of refined leisure and good tastes while supporting the FPL.
The traditional tea for adults and teens (over age 16) will feature a plentiful array of savory finger sandwiches, fine cakes and treats. The public is invited to come enjoy a little bit of English elegance with cozy four-seat tables set with antique china, spring flowers and party favors.
All refreshments will be freshly made by Kate Misciagna, of Katie Cooks Catering and Janet Picarelli, of Janet’s Quality Baked Goods. Gluten free desserts will be made by the Down 2 Earth Market. There will be numerous prize baskets and gift certificates to take a chance on. A prize for the best hat will be awarded, so fancy dress is welcome, although not required. The library’s Tween and Teen Ukulele Club will perform a short selection of songs. The Club, which consists of students in grades three and up, has been meeting monthly since November 2018. The Friends of FPL generously donated the ukuleles for club members to use.
For those who cannot attend, get in the spirit now and visit the library to donate $1 for an individual teabag in a pretty, petite envelope imprinted with a memorable quote from a favorite book. A selection of antique tea cups, linens, and fine embroidery are featured in our Local History showcase.
There are a limited number of tickets available. Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased at the Library. Payment must be made at the time of reservation. For more information call the FPL at 651-7659 or visit www.floridapubliclibrary.org.
