‘Tea time’ comes to New Richmond

When Vickie Hale hosted a tea party for her mother’s birthday, she had no idea that it would become a new business venture.

“I held a tea for my mom at my house and it was such fun that afterward I thought I would like to do this for other people to enjoy,” Hale said.

Vickie and John Hale are members of the Historical Society and realized that the Ross Gowdy House Museum would be a great place to host the tea parties. Vickie Hale got the okay from the Historical Society to begin the venture and the couple held their first tea party on Sept. 10.
