You know that set of wedding china taking up room in the back of your kitchen? or your mom’s kitchen? or your grandma’s?
What I love about the Pemberton Museum’s Tea and Tales programming is that all that lovely old china is being used.
Cuppa tea and treat under the shade of the big old trees and the pioneer buildings, before gathering for a talk about local history? It’s ridiculously delightful. Be sure to check out at least one.
It’s also a chance to check out two new exhibits: the brand new Transportation Exhibit and the Purden’s General Store Exhibit.
Visit Curator Niki, Supervisor Dana, summer students Georgina and Pascha, and the gang every Tuesday from 2pm to 4pm, for $2. (I thought Linda Ronayne’s amazing brownies at Mile One Eating House were the best way to spend $2 in Pemberton… but this is a run for the money.)
This summer, the theme of the talks is Transportation.
• July 28th: “Twelve Bridges and Miles of Muck” – Early Roads and Taxes
• August 4th: Bridge River, The Powerhouse Project
• August 11th: Lil’wat Fleet of Foot, First Trails with Randy Bouchard, Dorothy Kennedy and Johnny Jones
