By Staff | Mar 22, 2017

HUGHESVILLE – The East Lycoming Historical Society will host their ninth annual tea on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Friends Church, 137 South Third St., Hughesville. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. for guests to view various items for the raffle and door prizes. All proceeds will go toward paying expenses at the historical society’s museum located on S. Main St., Hughesville.

The event will be a typical English tea of three sources: scones, savories, and sweets, served with English tea. The tea will be served promptly at 2 p.m. Guests may wear vintage hats, gloves, and dresses if they wish.

The progam will be presented by Mary Sieminski. It is titled, “Where are the Women in the History of East Lycoming County?” She will attempt to include names of women who’ve made a difference in the eastern part of the county.

Ms. Sieminski is a columnist, historian, and retired librarian who has devoted these last few years to working on the “Lycoming County Women’s History Project”. Her historical series on county women appears in the Williamsport Sun-Gazette newspaper the second Sunday of each month.
