Victorian High Tea in Verlaque parlor

   The parlor of the 1886 Verlaque House on the grounds of the Guy B. Woodward Museum will be the setting for the fourth annual Victorian High Tea.
   Presented by the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society, the event will be on Saturday, May 8. Two seatings are planned, the first at 11 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m.  Tickets are $30 per person.
   The tea will feature table settings with appropriate linens and china. Ample servings of tea, finger sandwiches and cookies will be the bill of fare. Waiters dressed in regal attire will include Ron Peterka, Don Bartick, and Jim Hurlburt. 
   Ken Woodward, museum director, will lead tours of the Verlaque House, Millinery Shoppe, one-room  schoolhouse, and the museum grounds. The museum is at 645 Main St.
   During the Victorian Era, teas were women’s way of sharing friendships.  The tea is an opportunity to dress up and wear a hat and gloves, but it is not a requirement.
   Helping plan the event are Charlotte Hunsberger, Arline Bartick, Lila Peterka, Judy Nachazel, Ann Mundt, Carol Grenier, Alice Funk, Bonnie Bowe and Carol Hahn.
   Because of limited seating, reservations  are required. For reservations and more information, call the museum, 760-789-7644.
