Farmhouse Valentine Tea and Antique Quilt Exhibit (Photo) - 01/07/18

You are invited to ECHO's Farmhouse Valentine Tea and Antique Quilt Exhibit on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 1:00pm.

The East County Historical Organization's (ECHO's) annual fundraising Tea supports the restoration and preservation of the 1874 Zimmerman House and 1893 Heslin House Museums.

This is the first year for the 'farmhouse' theme and the menu will include scones with sweet cream, assorted savories, desserts, fresh fruit and hot tea. Vegan and gluten-free options are available upon request before February 5th.

This is also the first year ECHO will have some of the antique quilts from both the Heslin and Zimmerman House collections on exhibit. There will also be a raffle, giving you the opportunity to take home some special treats!

The adult Tea is $25.00 and children under 10 years old are $12.50.

Reservations are required before February 5th and can be secured by calling 503-618-0946 or by emailing info@echohistory.org. Reservations are limited, so don't delay!

The Farmhouse Valentine Tea will be held at the Quail Hollow Clubhouse, 21100 NE Sandy Blvd. in Fairview, Oregon. Parking is free and carpooling would be a great idea.

Feel free to wear your favorite hat and gloves!
