'Tea with Emily' 

Sunday, July 22nd, 1:15pm (doors 1:00pm)

Join Native Daughter/author Lisa Anne Smith for an illustrated presentation on Vancouver's first nurse, Emily Patterson.  When the Patterson family first arrived at Hastings Mill in 1873, Emily took it upon herself to serve as doctor and nurse to anyone in need of medical care. Her remarkable skills were self-taught out of necessity during many years of travel and living in remote communities. Celebrate Emily's 182nd birthday with tea and sweets while you learn about her heroic adventures. This event is fully accessible, doors open at 1:00pm, the presentation begins at 1:15pm.
