Sweet and savory treats will be served, with gluten-free options, along with AAMI’s signature lavender green tea and several other choices, including decaf and herbal tea.
The cost per person is $5. Reservations are required, by Friday, May 3, for sittings beginning on the hour at 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm. Seating fills quickly so make your reservations early by calling 717-597-9325 or by Facebook messaging the museum’s Facebook page.
The special exhibit is “Sweet Memories,” an exhibition of printed hankies from the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s – hankies your mother or grandmother may have had in their dresser drawers. The collection, a rainbow of colors, is that of the late Phoebe Ann Erb Gallagher, native of Lancaster, PA and well-known textile designer, who lived in Boston. Bring your hankies with you.
