21st Century Club Bicentennial Tea Planned for Sunday, May 3, 2020
Tickets go on sale Thursday, March 19, 2020 for the Rockford Bicentennial High Tea planned by the art and literary club
in Rockford called the 21st Century Club.
The event will be held at the Shanes Park Community building from 1-2:30 PM on Sunday, May 3, 2020. Tickets will be available at the Rockford Village Office beginning March 19. The tea is for folks 13 years and older. A $20 ticket provides the attendee with tea (or water), fresh-baked scones & toppings, unique sandwiches, and an array of sweets.
All three courses will be served to guests by the club members. Beautifully decorated tables are being planned, and old
time musical entertainment will be provided by Chatt native Paula Stephenson Schumm on two dulcimers and an
autoharp. Her instruments are hand-made by her husband, Rockford native Herb Schumm.
Attendees of this event are encouraged to dress in any period they choose with hats and gloves or other accessories.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Rockford Bicentennial Committee for future activities in 2020.
