HUGHESVILLE – For the fifth consecutive year, the East Lycoming Historical Society will hold a spring tea on Saturday, April 27 at the Friends Church in Hughesville. This year’s speaker will be fabric artist Wanda Hendershot. The Williamsport native has developed her creativity by expressing herself through art in textiles. She is active in quilting groups, one being “Fat Monday.”

Retired after a 30 year career as a nurse practitioner, Hendershot was the first in Lycoming County to be certified for this role. Her work included providing primary health care consisting of wellness and preventative care, and the assessment and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses. She is currently a volunteer with the Camp Victory summer program near Millville for children with special medical needs.

In addition to playing with fabric, other hobbies include playing tennis, bridge, yoga, reading and cooking.

New at the tea this year will be several items to be won with ticket chances. Among the prizes will be items made by the speaker; a four foot square barn quilt block, a set of quilted place mats with centerpiece, and more.

The ELHS museum will open for the season beginning Saturday and Sunday April 6 and 7 with hours from noon to 3 p.m. The museum is located at 66 S. Main Street, Hughesville.
