SUMMER 2019 BRANCH ACTIVITIES

“Real Housewives of Jamestown” – Lecture, Tour & English Tea
Green Springs Park, Alexandria

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The informal “talk” and slide show involved a description of the first “bride ship” (1619), which arrived in Jamestown bringing single English women to the colony to marry and start families helping to stabilize the community. Through stories and slides we learned about them and discovered that many found enrichment, empowerment and liberation in their new home. Everyone then enjoyed a wonderful English tea and learned a little bit about the history of the house on the beautifully kept gardens on the property. (August 14, 2019)
