On Wednesday, Oct. 27, from 3 to 7 p.m., the Cancer Care Center and Women’s Health at Penobscot Bay Medical Center will host the seventh annual Victorian Tea & Breast Health Fair at the Berry Manor Inn on Talbot Avenue in Rockland.

This event, held in a setting evocative of the Victorian era, is a wonderful opportunity for the Midcoast community to learn about breast health from knowledgeable healthcare professionals. PBMC is pleased to be able to present this kind of free access to healthcare education to our community.

Along with a traditional tea including sandwiches and desserts, this year’s fair will feature breast health educators and a free bra-fitting workshop. Guests can speak with consultants on breast self-examination, lymphedema and nutrition, stress reduction and Feng Shui.

Guests may schedule a mini-session for chair massage, reflexology, Reiki, Bowen Therapy or Jin Shin Jyutsu. Skin care consultations, makeovers, and a variety of workshops will be available throughout the afternoon. Come and enjoy the individual pampering and wealth of helpful and educational information being offered. Tea hats are encouraged.

Guests may park behind the inn on the north side of Granite Street and around the corner from the inn at the parking areas for the Lincoln Street Center at 24 Lincoln St. and the McLain School at 26 Lincoln St.
