Although snow may still be flying, spring has sprung at the Colonel Palmer House in Crystal Lake. On Sunday, April 6, 2014, the Crystal Lake Park District will again present their very popular Mother-Daughter Tea at the Colonel Palmer House located at 660 East Terra Cotta Avenue in Crystal Lake. Grandmas, moms and aunts will find that this afternoon tea is a delightful way to welcome spring with a special granddaughter, daughter or niece. Mrs. Palmer’s parlors come to life as costumed staff serve guests a delightful luncheon tea. A special presentation by Joan Walton on etiquette practices of the mid-1800s will surely inspire all. Girls (ages 4 & up) in attendance are encouraged to bring their favorite doll and all guests are encouraged to wear their finest hat.
