Wassail Tea Event at Cornerstone Garden-A Toast of Good Health for the New Year
Pets and Families are Welcome


Saturday December 3rd from 2-6pm Cornerstone Garden (414-B State Street) in Greensboro is hosting their annual Wassail Tea Event, free for the community. The warm beverage will be offered by various merchants along State Street including; Cornerstone Garden, The Secret Tea Room, Lillo Bella Shoes, Linnea’s Plus Size Boutique, Rubenesque for Less, The Saltbox, Mark Holder Jeweller, Tyler White Art Gallery and Eclectic by Nature. Wassail started out as an Old English greeting dating back to 1066 and meant “be hale” or “be of good health.” State Street Shoppes would like to share the toast of good health with you.


At 2:00, St PiusX’s hand bell choir will begin their Angelic performance among the beautiful greenery at Cornerstone Garden. The sound of the bells and the passion in their hearts are sure to bring chills, easily warmed with various recipes of Wassail Tea. A surprise from the North Pole will take requests from children to Santa Claus, ARA trio will provide banjo acoustics and Ginger Waynick & Phil Sparks will provide jazzy song throughout the garden from past holiday favorites.


Operation Smile will accept donations for their cause during the event. Since 1982, Operation Smile through the help of dedicated medical volunteers, has provided more than 2 million patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
