An Evening with Mary Alive Higbie

How long has it been since you received a handwritten missive via snail mail? Whether a quickly-jotted note or a long thought out letter, this type of communication is rare. It is quickly becoming a lost art, and many opportunities are vanishing in its wake.

The St. James Tearoom has a passion to promote relationship, assist in the deep connection of one person to another, and provide a means to do this using afternoon tea. We also enjoy encouraging other means of meaningful communication, such as the disappearing handwritten note or letter. Our proprietress, Mary Alice Higbie, will join us for afternoon tea, share her love for this lost art, and help us develop this beautiful means of real connection with its powerful possibilities.

Pennysmiths Paper will be on hand with information about various styles of stationery and the pens you may use to express your thoughts, as well as examples of quality stationery that will add a weight of sincerity to your correspondence. Author and motivational speaker Getrude Matshe will relate the delightful story of Dear Henry, her soon-to-be-published book, which tells her love story...a story which evolved through her poignant letters to a hoped-for love.

Please join us for an inspiring evening, filled with information and ideas for developing your own, unique Art of Correspondence. We look forward to seeing you there.
