Movies at the Mansion
Thursday, February 5
7 p.m.

We celebrate romance in February with the screening of a bittersweet movie in the double parlors. Set before World War II, Brief Encounter (1945) stars Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson as married Brits who fall in love after a chance encounter, but out of consideration for their families opt not to be together. Directed by David Lean and based on Noel Coward’s play Still Life.
Free popcorn and tissues.

Victorian Valentine Workshop
Thursday, February 7
1 -3 p.m.

Show that you care—not with a boring, store-bought card, but with a handmade, full-of-charm, sure-to-woo original creation. Learn about the history of valentines and the printed “scraps” used to make them in the 19th century while you craft your own memorable card.
A fun workshop for the whole family!
