Holton Home, 158Western Ave Brattleboro VT  05301... setting the standard in elder care since 1892


Around the Halls of Holton Home

Every year our wonderful Visiting Committee puts on a Valentine’s Tea!  Teas really are wonderful things.  You get a chance to sit, socialize and relax, drink tea out of fine china and nibble on delicious treats!  As Henry James said, there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.

Holton Home residents have enjoyed this tradition for many, many years, delighting in chocolate covered strawberries, little cookies and candies and other wonder nibbles.  For years Dodo made her famous tea sandwiches with traditional fillings on the right super-thin bread that she sliced with her electric knife (a trade secret!)  I would like to whole-hearted thank Holton Home’s Visiting Committee for all of the wonderful things they do, but especially for our Valentine’s Tea!  It makes everyone feel so very special!

I encourage you all to take a moment and slow down and have some tea, whether to watch the sunrise with a mug or have a special little party with friends and loved ones with fancy tea cups and fun little snacks!  You’ll be glad you did!
