Member Morning

girls set the table at Flynn Mansion


Tuesday, August 22, 2017
9:30 am - 10:30 am

Victorian Table Manners

Adults, Children 6 & up

Practice grown up table manners while setting the dining table at the Flynn Mansion for a family meal and a company supper. Do you know where the oyster fork goes? No food will be served, but napkins will be folded, plates laid, and glasses placed. Visit with interpreters about manners at the table as well as the specialty serving pieces, china, and other dining room decorations. Not a Living History Farms member? Sign up now!

NEW for 2017: We are offering a new program for our members this year: Member Mornings; exclusive members-only immersive experiences each month! If you loved Member Mondays in the past, this new program is perfect for you! But instead of just Mondays, we’ll offer programs on a variety of days throughout the season from May-October. We hope that this varied schedule helps more members participate! In addition to the expanded schedule, another change is that these programs will be offered for FREE to LHF members!

Pre-registration is not required, but space is limited. Each program is first-come, first-served. The first fifteen member children who sign up at the admissions desk on the day of the program will get to participate. Children must have parental/adult accompaniment to participate. Please arrive early to reserve your spot and allow time to travel to the historic site. All programs begin at 9:30am and last approximately 30-45 minutes.
