Hats Off to Miss Matilda
Every year the Friends sponsors a mother-daughter tea like the ones Miss Matilda Frelinghuysen may have attended as a child. This year's is early in 2010 and is entitled, "Hats off to Miss Matilda." We will post lots more information on the website as the time gets nearer.
Our Marge Hulstrunck, who many of you know from the exciting flower arranging programs at the Arboretum, is in charge of the centerpieces for the tables. She has written, asking for your help:
This is a great program and you can help make this year's even better.
