|Eleanor Roosevelt Tea as mentioned in OC 115|
"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until you put her in hot water". ER
This Saturday, September 26th, join us at the Townsend Hotel, together with the Baldwin Library, as we present an "Eleanor Roosevelt Afternoon Tea". The program will include a presentation from Barb's Tea Service on the life and times of this fascinating first lady and a full afternoon tea menu from the Townsend.

We also found it a bit shocking that Eleanor agreed, while living in the White House, to carry a gun with her when she wanted to go out for tea with her friends.
