The event was created to create community awareness of Nellie’s accomplishments and to promote local history.  Participants enjoyed hors-d’oeuvres and a myriad of teas, were encouraged to wear period attire, and learn more about the Nellie Sheridan statue project. The cost for this event was $10.00 per person (see gallery page for photos of the tea).  January 17th 2015
