On October 22, 2022, the West Jefferson Hills Historical Society (WJHHS) provided a delightful afternoon for attendees at its ‘Titanic Tea and Fashion Fundraiser’ held in the Community Rooms of the Jefferson Hills Municipal Building. This sold-out community event featured an authentic high tea, complete with freshly baked scones, a variety of finger sandwiches, and several delectable bite-sized desserts. In addition to tea the event included a display of and a program about Titanic Era fashion.

From beginning to end the event was an enchanting affair. Upon arrival guests received a boarding pass and cabin key souvenir, and then they were escorted to their tables by the dining room steward.  At their table, attendees were welcomed with a lovely fall flower centerpiece which was later given as a table prize.  At each place setting, guests discovered a cinnamon eggnog scone, a printed biography of one of the Titanic’s passengers, and a hand-made drawstring bag favor reminiscent of the Edwardian Era. After tea was served, speaker Debbie Popp Gilbert of the Elizabeth Township Historical Society, delivered a charming program filled with fascinating details about the Edwardian fashion of 1912 as well as little known facts about the Titanic disaster. 

Without a doubt, those lucky enough to have obtained a ticket to the Titanic Tea and Fashion Fundraiser found it to be a lovely way to spend an autumn afternoon.
