Members of the Barrington-based Signal Hill Chapter, NSDAR, are pleased to announce "A Virtual Afternoon Tea and Drama" taking place via Zoom at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24.

For this event, preregistered attendees are invited to dress up in their finest attire, don a fancy hat, brew a cup of tea and enjoy a unique online experience.

 

This year's program will feature author and storyteller Lynn Rymarz in a dramatic presentation titled "Meet Mary Cassatt: An American Artist."

Rymarz will share details of the life of Mary Cassatt, a child growing up in Pennsylvania with dreams of becoming a professional artist. Mary Cassatt resists the conventions of her day and moves to Paris, where her artistic talent is influenced by the Impressionists.

Following the drama, the chapter will hold a live Tea Basket Drawing.

"All funds raised will enable the chapter to continue its support of education, historic preservation, patriotism, and conservation," said Joyce Wright, Signal Hill Chapter regent.
