Jane Austen's 242nd Birthday Celebration

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!

Come and celebrate Jane Austen’s 242nd birthday with a special tea party at Meeker Mansion in Puyallup Saturday, December 16th! The afternoon revels will begin at 1:30 with a tour of the mansion for those interested, and continue at 2:30 with a tea party catered by Arista. Naturally, there will be birthday cake!

This special party will be a ticketed event — there is room for only 48 people, so please be sure you get your ticket early! Tickets are available right now, for JASNA members only — non-member tickets will be sold at a later date, but we wanted to be sure our members had first chance to attend. Ticket sales will close on Thursday, November 16, 2017. Absolutely NO tickets will be sold on the day of the event.

Your ticket price (members - $32.00) includes the elegant tea party — the cost of rental of the Meeker Mansion and guided tours will be covered by JASNA Puget Sound Region.

As with many historic houses, Meeker Mansion is not as accessible as might be needed by everyone. Please note that a few steps must be navigated to enter the main floor of Meeker Mansion, where the tea party will be held. Quite a few (at least 25) steps are required to reach the second floor, if you were wanting to participate in the full tour. Those not wishing to brave those stairs are most welcome to partake of the ground-floor tour and then socialize while the upstairs tour is on. No doubt, some members have taken the tour before and will prefer to remain and mingle on the main floor.

To purchase your ticket(s) either use the PayPal button below, or email program@austenps.com to see where to send your check.
