Victorian Tea in the Garden - July 2002

The Victorian Tea in the Garden is a day when we step back in time and enjoy a day of leisure while strolling through the Cooley Gardens, listening to the live music or marveling at the caricaturist drawing portraits before our eyes.

The Tea is a family oriented event.  We want to share this beautiful area of Lansing with everyone.  Please come and join us for a relaxing day.

Date to be announced
