Heritage Group North will host the sixth annual Tea at the Station from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, at the Historic Pine River Depot with the theme, "Hats Off to the Depot."

The three-course Victorian high-tea event is a fundraiser for Heritage Group North. Participants are encouraged to bring their own teacup and saucer, as well as wear hats and gloves.

Amarilla Spracklin married George Barclay in 1878 at age 19 and moved to Pine River, becoming the first white woman to live in Pine River. She was proud of her millinery business, which will be part of a slide show at the event.

Tickets are $25 per person. Seating is limited. For ticket information, contact Lynda Weiss at 612-275-7565 or email heritagegroupnorth@yahoo.com.

This year's grand prize raffle will be a private tea party for eight to 10 people hosted by the Tea at the Station Committee at a location of the winner's choice or at the home of Agnes and Keith Farnam, Pine River.

Raffle tickets will be $5 each and the drawing will be held Sept. 6 at the depot. Winner need not be present.
