This High Tea Party concept was created by Menervia Akers. She wanted to create a memorable event in the community during Mother’s Day weekend. She presented the bold concept to Marcia Chrysostom of Lynn.
We wanted to bring social events to the community…a great way to gather and socialize with friends and family. We wanted to create a memorable event that everyone deserves to feel special while enjoying the ambiance at Lynn Museum/Lynn Arts, indulge in shrimp, cheese and cracker, fine savory finger sandwiches and sweet petit pastries, and sip HIGH TEA & champagne.
During the Pre-Mother’s Day, High Tea Gala event, Award Ceremony to honor Mother of the Year Award and In Memory of Bernice “Niecee” Nash Award presented by Master of Ceremonies Mr. Darrell Murkison of Lynn.
