Tea for two — or maybe 350 of your closest friends?
Freed-Hardeman University Associates celebrated their 20th year of tea parties by serving a full afternoon tea to approximately 350 guests. The annual rite of spring returned to the home of N.B. Hardeman, long-time president of the university, for the first time in several years, due to a renovation of the Hardeman House followed by COVID-19 restrictions.
Approximately 25 volunteer cooks labored in FHU’s commercial kitchens to prepare 1,200 scones, 1,200 tiny cucumber sandwiches and 600 small lemon-blueberry cupcakes, along with the other delectable treats.
