Build memories and enjoy lots of family fun at a Victorian Holiday Tea Party on Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Old Jail, 110 King Street in East Greenwich. Sponsored by the EG Historic Preservation Society, this is a real tea with sweets and savories, hot chocolate, mulled cider and tea – all served on real china in a space decorated for the occasion. Photos with Santa, a Rhode Island keepsake for each child, crafting a holiday ornament, a lesson on Victorian tea etiquette, songs and a story and a raffle are all part of this festive event. Youngsters up to age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The party runs from 2 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults; $15 for children, with discounts for members of the Society (log on to members page, then go to events to receive discount). Tickets are available online at www.eghps.org and the deadline to order is Dec. 7. This is a fundraiser to help the society preserve the circa 1796 Old Jail building on the East Greenwich waterfront. Note: The event is on the second floor and is not accessible to people with mobility difficulties.
