Article about the following year’s Hon Tea:
3rd Annual Hon Tea benefits Heritage Museum of Essex & Middle River
By Lisa Harlow (Avenue News, 4/19/2016)
Attention all Hons: Spray up your beehive, don your finest leopard print and get yourself all dolled up for the third annual Hon Tea! The tea will be held on Sunday, April 24, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River Museum. All proceeds from the tea will benefit the museum and its programs.
When you hear about a “tea,” you may picture stuffy society folks sipping with their pinkies up, but that is not how the hons roll! Attendees should be prepared for good food, fun and games, networking and a few surprises. This year’s theme is Flamingos and Trailer Parks. Once again, all guests are encouraged to bring donations of packaged feminine pads and tampons for area women’s shelters.
“It’s these small things woman do in and for our community that really are a big deal. Hons are usually quiet and humble and don’t think what they are doing is out of the ordinary, but it really is,” said Terri Knachel, president of the Historical Society and Hon Tea hostess. “Hons are the ambassadors to Baltimore. That is why I’m honored to throw a Hon Tea every year to benefit the Essex and Middle River Heritage Society. I feel the women in and around our community are the best of the best, and you won’t find anyone with bigger hearts.”
