Historium’s annual tea set for Thursday, July 29

Vicki Lindsey Garner

The Ozark County Historium in Gainesville will host its traditional summertime event, the Historium Tea, at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 29. After a two-year hiatus, it is a welcome resumption of one of the most successful events sponsored by Historium volunteers in years past.

In keeping with the theme of “All the Flowers of All the Tomorrows are in the Seeds of Today,” the guest speaker for the tea will be Vicki Lindsey Garner of Baxter County, Arkansas. A native Arkansan, Vicki moved to Mountain Home in July 1976 with her husband, Phil, and their children, Edie and Jason. In 1978, Vicki opened Plants Alive, a lawn and garden business. After she closed the shop 10 years later, she worked as a counselor for the Department of Human Services and later as a social worker for the Mountain Home School District. Today she hosts the “Gardening in the Ozarks” show with Bob Knight on KTLO FM 97.9 from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays. The radio show features a question-and-answer format, and Vicki will also entertain gardening questions during her presentation at the tea.

Tickets are now on sale for $10 each and can be purchased at the Historium during its hours of operation, 10 a.m. until noon Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. They may also be ordered by mailing a check to Ozark County Historium, P.O. Box 4, Gainesville MO 65655. Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis and, in the past, have sold quickly.
