Our monthly Thursday Teas at Two series is on pause this summer while social distancing is in effect. In the meantime, we invite you to register for these socially distanced, small-group format history talks—instead of “Teas at Two,” think of them as “Teas for a Few!
We are following CDC guidelines to make your visit as safe as possible. Therefore, these programs will be led by Village staff inside air-conditioned Old Troy Church, with 6ft-spaced seating for up to 20 guests at a time. Masks are required for this indoor program. Instead of serving tea and cookies during the talk, guests will receive a take-home goodie bag with a sweet treat inside.
Registration is required; we cannot accommodate walk-ins. You can register online or by phone up to 2 weeks in advance of each talk. Scroll down to register and pay online or call 248-524-3570 to register and pay over the phone.
We’ll keep adding new talks and different time slots throughout the summer, check back here for the latest schedules and topics!
