The Sippican Woman’s Club presents the 31st Annual House Tour and Tea from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, December 9. Proceeds from the Holiday House Tour are used for annual scholarship awards to local students – both graduating seniors and college students. The theme this year is “Festival of Trees” with over 60 decorated trees – some for sale – in the Tavern. Wassail will be served before proceeding to five homes, each uniquely decorated.
There is also the elegant Tea at St. Gabriel’s, corner of Front Street and South Street, where one can enjoy freshly baked pastries and have a chance to warm up. Tea will be served between 2:00 and 4:00 pm by club members.
Tickets are $20 in advance by purchasing them in Marion at Serendipity by the Sea, The Bookstall, and Marion General Store. In Mattapoisett, tickets may be purchased at Isabelle’s in The Ropewalk. Tickets may be reserved by mail (Sippican Woman’s Club, P.O. Box 121, Marion MA, 02738; please write “tickets” on your envelope) and picked up at Coldwell Banker, next to Handy’s Tavern. Tickets may also be purchased on the day of the tour, for $25 at Coldwell Banker.
