“Hats from Yesterday and Today” is the program for the Kendall County Association for Home and Community Education’s 19th annual Victorian Tea at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 22 at Cross Lutheran Church on Route 47 in Yorkville.
The event includes three courses of tea and the program, which will be presented between the servings. HCE members Marilyn Zoener and June Saidat from Minooka will present the program on hats. Zoener has been collecting hats for years. She has between 175 to 200 hats, some that go back to the 1920s. Attendees are encouraged to wear hats to the tea, and are reminded to bring a favorite tea cup, as the church no longer has ceramic cups.
Reservations will be taken starting at the end of August. To RSVP, call Beverly Scott at 630-554-1530. Tickets for adults are $15; tickets for children 12 and younger are $8. This fundraiser supports educational programs and outreach at Extension and 4-H in Kendall County.
