The Egremont and Mount Washington Councils on Aging are sponsoring a High Tea Party from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the Egremont Village Inn. The tea celebrates the birthdays of the towns' nonagenarians (90-year-olds) and other seniors.

The first of the combined COAs' monthly events, the High Tea will feature special recognitions and appreciations of this rite of passage, plus tea sandwiches, cookies, and scones, and a short talk about the history of tea. Tea will be donated by Harney & Sons.

All seniors and their families are welcome.

RSVP to Egremont Town Hall, 518-528-0182, ext. 17, or by email to Inform Will of special dietary requirements or if transportation is needed.
