The program for this celebratory occasion will be present by Janet Bird, LCHS education coordinator, and will give the chance to reminisce about the last twenty years of teas at The Hickories. Afterwards, guests will be served a three-course high tea complete with savory sandwiches, scrumptious scones, and delightful desserts. Tickets are $25 each for LCHS members and $28 for non-members.
