Home-Past Meetings - Jane's Birthday 2015


Here is a link to Nancy's pictures of the event - Jane's Birthday Celebration 2015  


  Jane Austen’s birthday celebration will return to the Heritage House, a Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfast, located at 207 High Street NE, Albuquerque, N.M. for an afternoon tea on December 12, 2015 from 1-3 p.m.  The cost will be $32.16 including tax. The deadline for getting your checks to Joanne is December 3. Please mail your check to Joanne McCloskey, 1301 Hertz Drive. SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108. Joanne has asked that you call her and let her know how many will be attending. She may be reached at 350-7106 (cell) or her home phone at 266-3588.

A map to the Heritage House is attached.

The refurbished Heritage House features architectural elements of the time it was built in 1907. The beautiful tapestries, antique stained glass, and elegant antiques highlight the Victorian features throughout the house. The spacious suites and quaint, but elegant, rooms in the house retain the historical ambiance and feel of the original house built over 100 years ago.

Refreshments will be provided. If you have any special dietary constraints, please let Joanne know when you register.

Joanne has suggested that we all come prepared with a favorite reading from any of Jane’s books. As usual, costumes are welcome but not required.


           Don’t forget,  we also have two items in our raffle occurring during Jane’s Birthday celebration in December. Tickets for each item are $10.00 each and may be obtained at the meeting.

            First we have a repeat of a very popular selection from last year – Tana Reber is offering to make a Regency Dress for one lucky winner – the specifications are shown on the image. Tana will create the dress especially for the winner of the Raffle. Joanne has donated a rug for our raffle – the tickets for this item are also $10.00 each and will be available the next meeting.






We look forward to seeing you to help celebrate Jane's birthday.


            It at any time you decide that you don't want to continue to receive our notices, you only need to send a short email to dal@jasnanm.com and I will be happy to remove you from our list. If you know additional individuals who might like to receive our mailings, a simple request to the same address will insure that it is done.
