Agassiz’s Dickens Tea sells out for seventh year

The annual holiday event saw visitors enjoy high tea and historic talks

High tea, historic talks and happy visitors all came out to the Cheam Village Conference Room for the seventh annual Dickens Tea this past weekend.

On Saturday, Dec. 7, the Agassiz-Harrison Historical Society hosted the annual holiday celebration — and sold out for the seventh time in a row. The tea is one of the society’s fundraiser’s and an opportunity to old friends to gather and share in the holiday spirit.

“There’s plenty of tea and a good time, and lots of people renewing old acquaintances and just having a general good time,” society director Bev Kennedy said.

“Somebody said to me as they were leaving, it’s such a good way to start off the Christmas season.”
