Residents are invited to a ‘high tea’

Staff reports

Just what is a “high tea?” The idea behind an afternoon tea, according to Carson Valley Historical Society spokesperson Liz Paul, is to be pampered, relax and socialize with friends.

“Normally,” Paul said, “a few varieties of teas are served. An English tea would not be complete without cucumber and an assortment of finger sandwiches for the first course. Next would come scones with a selection of jams and lemon curd and, finally, the dessert.”

In February, Carson Valley residents may experience a “high tea” with the Victorian Valentine High Tea and Fashion Show – elegance on a Sunday afternoon at the Riverbend Grille at Genoa Lakes Golf Course.

Authentic Victorian fashions will be modeled by K.C. Brennan and a harpist will provide background music. The tea will be held Feb. 8 at 1 p.m. for a cost of $25, with a portion of the proceeds going to the historical society.

All tickets will be sold in advance, and no tickets will be available at the door. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5, and the grand prize is an overnight stay for two at Sorensen’s in Hope Valley, donated by Sorensen’s.

The Aladdin Flower and Gift Shop donated an arrangement of freeze-dried roses in a teacup.

A window display of raffle prizes is located by the front desk of the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center, 1477 Highway 395, Gardnerville. Raffle tickets and admission tickets to the tea may be purchased at the museum, or call Terri Hickey, 782-2164, or Roxanne Manfredi, 265-4328.
