An Afternoon to Remember— the largest tented formal tea party ever staged in Warwick


The Warwick Historical Society and Foundation of St. Anthony Community Hospital are joining together to present An Afternoon to Remember— the largest tented formal tea party ever staged in Warwick.

Since a cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage—part of the day’s events will include a trip back in time when formal garden tea parties and grand sea voyages were commonplace. In homage to this tradition— beginning at noon on May 5th— guests will register at the A.W. Buckbee Center where they will receive a ...“Passport Journal” and enjoy a Grand Tour of five Historical Society museums. Each museum will showcase new examples from the Society’s famed clothing collection. The museums will also be open to the public on May 5th from noon to 4pm.

Additionally, “tussie mussie” making will take place at the Buckbee Center and small tea tins will be given out to each guest, to be filled with traditional teas as they tour each museum. Guests will then be directed to enjoy tea, an array of delectable treats, a Silent Auction and a String Quartet under a large airy tent on the lawn at Lewis Park from 2pm until 4pm.

A highlight of the event – is that Lillibet Lewis McLean will be honored. Mrs. McLean’s parents and grandparents were very instrumental in forming both The Warwick Historical Society and St. Anthony Community Hospital. Her family’s dedication to making Warwick a special town is a treasured ongoing endeavor that the Committee, the Historical Society and St. Anthony’s are honored to celebrate.

All proceeds will benefit St. Anthony Community Hospital as well as benefit and preserve the Historical Society’s Collections. Men, women and children are all welcome to attend!
