The Ties That Bind: History of the Apron

Join us for this fun-filled Friends fundraiser!

Wednesday, May 22 at 6:30pm

Since almost the beginning of time, the apron has been worn in front of the body for practical, decorative and ritualistic purposes. They’ve been worn to protect garments, indicate status, depict rank, and as cultural icons.  And they are back in vogue today!  Join us as we delve into the beginnings of aprons and how they evolved over the decades to today.

We invite everyone to wear their own favorite apron, especially those handed down with love from Mom or Grandma. Event tickets are $15 each or a pack of 4 for $40. Please visit the library in person to purchase your tickets. Basket raffle to take place the night of the event. Raffle tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. We’ll explore the history of the apron, enjoy light refreshments, and mingle with friends.

All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Harrison Township Public Library and help fund library programs, projects, equipment, and events that support the library’s mission.
