On Sat.,September 17th, there will be a Victorian Tea at the historical Kellogg-Eddy House on 679 Willard Ave. at 11:am-12noon. Very limited seating, they can only sell 8 seats to our group. So the first 8 people to bring their checks/$25 to the Kellogg/Eddy House get in! Registration starts Sept.6. (This is a fund-raiser for the Newington Historical Society) We go to this every year, and every time we go, we all have a good time! I will be going there myself to drop off my check, so if anyone would rather write the check to 'Newington Historical Society' and give it to me, I will drop it off as well when I go. Remember they are not accepting registrations till Sept 6.
