The Third Annual Spring Tea, presented by the Beaufort History Museum, was held on May 10.

The event, “Crowning Glory – Celebrating the Role of Women’s Hats in Southern Culture,” was held at the Dataw Island Club.

Patrons were invited to“Strut  their Hattitude” as they savored traditional delicacies, sipped tea, listened to informative speakers and bid in a silent auction.

Proceeds benefit the projects of the Beaufort History Museum.
