Lead Summary
Lori Sorenson

Volunteers at Luverne’s Historic Hinkly House are preparing the Victorian home for another round of holiday guests.
Diane Jauert is putting final touches on décor for this year’s theme, “Cup of Christmas Tea,” and visitors are encouraged to stop in Saturday afternoon between Winterfest activities.
The Hinkly House will be open and on display from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, and a special program is planned to start at 2 p.m.
Volunteer Janet Burger, wearing appropriately themed attire, will read Tom Hegg’s heartwarming poem, “A Cup of Christmas Tea,” which carries an important holiday message.
“The whole point is to spend time,” Burger said. “In the book, she listens to him and encourages him to have meaningful relationships.”
A highlight of the afternoon will be a light-hearted demonstration, “How to Host a Tea,” which promises to be both entertaining and informative.
Meanwhile, Hinkly House volunteer Shirley Harrison will perform holiday songs on the dulcimer, and refreshments will be served.
