MORGANTOWN — Spring has arrived at Adaland Mansion and with it comes the beginning of Adaland’s 2018 season of events.
The annual Mother’s Day Buffet will be held May 13, with three seatings. Adaland’s veteran cook Lucy Williamson promises to set the buffet table with a homecooked menu of two entrees, a variety of sides, crisp salad with Williamson’s secret dressing, home-baked bread and rolls and a dessert sideboard. For reservations available for the few remaining seats, call 304-457-2415 or 304-457-1587.
The third spring event at Adaland is the annual Blue & Gray Tea. This June 2 buffet tea is one that has been part of the Annual Blue & Gray Reunion for many years on the weekend that commemorates the first land battle of the Civil War, fought in Philippi, Va., on June 3, 1863.
The many re-enactors who attend the tea provide fun photo opportunities. Additionally, tea guests are always treated to traditional tea finger-foods and fresh fruits. Reservations for the 10 a.m. tea may be made by calling the aforementioned phone numbers.
