January Luncheon at Michie Tavern
Tuesday, January 24
We always go to Michie Tavern in January, and why not? A buffet of delicious southern food, a roaring fire, hot mulled cider, and a fascinating gift shop full of early American treasures to explore.
In keeping with the experience, our guest speaker for the afternoon is Ann Shelton, who is the seventh great-granddaughter of Sarah Thompson Brown (1724-1815). Sarah and her husband, Benjamin Brown, settled in western Albemarle County, Virginia in 1745. Ann portrays life in pioneer living, prior to the revolution, among the Blue Ridge Mountains, in period garb.
The deadline for responses is January 17. Check page 1 of your newsletter for all the details.
