An Elizabethtown holiday tradition kicks off December with a chance for good food, good company, and fun holiday shopping.
The 63rd Annual Greens Tea, presented by the Elizabethtown-Westport Garden Club, will take place on Friday, Dec. 1 at the UCC Parish Hall from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
A light luncheon of soup, sandwiches and dessert will be served from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. The cost is $6.
One of the highlights of the holiday sale is decorated wreaths, priced at $25.00. Wreaths sell out quickly, so people are encouraged to arrive early. Holiday crafts and gifts sold by local vendors provide additional gift giving selections. Individuals interested in renting a table should contact Kathy Linker at (518) 873-6493 by Nov. 25.
All proceeds from the Greens Tea will benefit local emergency services, including the Elizabethtown Community Hospital, High Peaks Hospice, North Country Life Flight and local EMS.
At the Greens Tea, individuals can pick up a 10 percent off voucher for the Adirondack History Museum’s gift shop. The Museum, located just across the street, will be open for a special day of holiday shopping. The museum offers a selection of Adirondack goods and local books. Proceeds from sales at the museum benefit programming.
People are invited to visit the museum from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., for warm drinks and holiday snacks. While at the museum, people will have an opportunity to view select items from the museum’s annual online auction fundraiser. The fundraiser is held at www.biddingforgood.com/ADKhistorymuseum, and runs from Nov. 24-Dec. 3.
