Saturday Morning Tea with "Mina Edison" and "Clara Ford"

Join “Mina Edison” and “Clara Ford” for iced tea and pastries in the Edison Caretaker’s House as they reminisce about family and friends, living part-time in Florida, as well as their helpful hints for their marriage, gardening and menu interests. This delightful program features two “seasoned” Edison Ford docents and living history characters who will greet the audience and welcome them into their conversation.
