Historical Society tea commemorates the Titanic
Just a little over 100 years have passed since the R.M.S. Titanic sank at 2:30 a.m. April 14, 1912 on its maiden voyage from Southampton, Great Britain, to New York City.

The Oregon Jerusalem Historical Society commemorated the event with a pair of proper teas, held May 22 and 24.

As guests arrived they received a program folder at the door. The enclosed boarding pass bore the name of an actual passenger from the ship. As the tea began, each of  the 96 guests learned the fate of the identity they had been given.

Harpist Caili Bonar set the mood as guests were photographed in front of a backdrop of the Titanic before being seated. Encouraged to wear hats for the occasion, guests transformed the Brandville School into a 1912 tea room. Actors from the Oregon Community Theatre portrayed passengers who survived the sinking, sharing the events of that fateful night and how it affected their lives.

The three-course tea and program ended with glasses being raised in a final toast to the 2,228 passengers of the Titanic – the survivors and those who perished.
