The ladies put on their bonnets to drop into Canal Side Inn for a Valentine’s Afternoon Tea event on Wednesday. The Tea Thyme Lassie’s organized the event and acted as servers.

According to Barb Mielcarski, “We started doing teas down at Herkimer Home, but now we’re having them here and this is much nicer.”

Canal Side Inn provided the food for the event, which they want to have every month. Katy Tomei, with the Cafe at Stone Mill, said, “We are providing a soup course, a sweet and savory scone course, then a chicken salad on a croissant with a petite salad. We’re going to finish with red velvet cupcakes.”

“It’s going to be a fantastic event,” she said.

Money raised during the afternoon will go to the Little Falls Food Pantry.
