KCTS Jane Austen Tea
Daughters of the American
Somewhere in Time, Unlimited (SITU) and the Jane Austen Society,
volunteered to act as "background color" for PBS's KCTS Channel
9. The television station had organized a Jane Austen Tea as a fundraiser
in conjunction with a Jane Austen movie series being featured a
The event was held in the upper level of the gracious DAR Mansion in the historic and prestigious neighborhood of Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington where there are many mansions.
|The members of SITU & JASNAhad previously volunteered in April at another tea. At that time, SITU was the "meet-n-greet", assisted guests to their seats, participated in the fashion show, and were rewarded with the same refreshments (as the guests were) of delightful sweets/savories and pots of tea!|
The entrance hall is as
dramatic as the sweep of the drive approaching the mansion and
the grand staircase which lead participants to the ballroom
located on the second floor.
The mansion is a replica of George Washington's own residence. Lovely...
Immediately off the foyer to the left, there is a spacious room
housing a grand piano.
The room is so large, it has two individual doors which lead you back into the foyer. The settee in this photo separates the bank of doors.
Here, Toivo a SITU member, is shown with a large fan. He was helping air circulate past the guests arriving and I'm sure they appreciated his efforts on this warm day!
