Adaland Mansion will host its annual tribute to the Blue & Gray Reunion’s reenactors when it welcomes guests and reenactors to the Sat., June 1 Blue & Gray Tea at 10 a.m. on the pavilion at Adaland Mansion.
Adaland’s buffet table will be laden with traditional tea foods including tea sandwiches, cakes, cookies, fresh fruit, and special treats for the guests. Guests and reenactors will proceed through the buffet line and then take their dishes to the side yard pavilion where they can enjoy the spring morning and perhaps capture photo ops with the attending reenactors.
The above pictures show- case a recent tea buffet table and also Terri Riffle, a veteran reenactor with Barbour County’s own Barbour Greys. Riffle is modeling one of her authentic time period ensembles. Such period clothing will be worn by this year’s attending reenactors who are always willing to take
pictures with guests.
Reenactors attending the tea are asked to confirm their attendance with the Blue & Gray Registration Chairperson. The reenactor’s registration fee includes attendance at the tea. The general public may reserve a seat for this annual event by calling 304-457-2415. Adult tickets for the general public are $20.
Adaland’s house manager Jean Mozley, the baker for this tea, says she has a mouthwater- ing array of tea foods planned for this special occasion. Mozley will be assisted by Adaland volunteers.
