Annual Marjorie Morrison Memorial Tea to Benefit Sims Library.

The 13th annual Marjorie Morrison Memorial Tea will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2024, at

this event, which includes a Friends of Sims Library membership, are $35.

This year’s tea will feature a variety of teas, a selection of delicious sandwiches and pastries,

Hammond Regional Arts Center.
