Women's Club house tour to celebrate 'Festival of Trees'

Nov 20, 2017

The Sippican Woman’s Club is hosting its annual "House Tour and Tea" from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, December 9 .

Proceeds from the Holiday House Tour are used for annual scholarship awards to local students, both graduating seniors and college students. The theme this year is “Festival of Trees." The tour will include over 60 decorated trees (some of which will be for sale) in the Women's Club headquarters, Handy's Tavern.

Wassail will be served before proceeding to five homes, each uniquely decorated.

There will also be a tea at St. Gabriel’s located at the corner of Front Street and South Street, where those on the tour can enjoy freshly baked pastries and have a chance to warm up. Tea will be served between 2p.m.-4 p.m., by club members.

Tickets are $20 in advance. They can be purchased in Marion at Serendipity by the Sea, The Book Stall, and Marion General Store.

In Mattapoisett, tickets may be purchased at Isabelle’s in The Ropewalk.

Tickets may be reserved by mail (Sippican Woman’s Club, P.O. Box 121, Marion Ma., please write “tickets” on your envelope) and picked up at Coldwell Banker, next to Handy’s Tavern. Tickets may also be purchased on the day of the tour, for $25 per ticket at Coldwell Banker.
