An elegant “Victorian Pink Tea” celebrating 100 Years of Votes for Women will feature a suffragette-themed presentation by Joanne Rajoppi, Union County Clerk, historian and author. The Sat., Nov. 7, event (previously planned for May 2 but postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions) will be hosted by the Kenilworth Historical Society in the Kenilworth Gospel Chapel Hall (557 Newark Ave.), starting at noon.
An array of assorted teas, tea sandwiches, scones and desserts will be served. The event also will feature a gift auction and door prizes.
Admission is $30. Advance reservations are requested, as seating is limited. For reservations/tickets, please call 908-709-0434 or visit Especially Yours Florist at 13 North 20 Street, Kenilworth.
Proceeds from the Nov. 7 Tea and Gift Auction will benefit the Kenilworth Historical Society’s Oswald J. Nitschke House (c. 1880) “living history” museum and cultural arts center by helping defray the cost of an elevator that makes all levels of the site (“living history” museum, exhibition center and cultural arts center) fully accessible to everyone.
