Sweet Discourse: A Visit with Lady Washington
The Bruton Guides Ministry is pleased to announce that the very successful “Sweet Discourse” series will resume on Wednesday, September 26. As the series of programs high-lighting the history of Bruton Parish Church con-tinues, we are delighted that it is being co-sponsored by the Heritage Center Committee. Coffee and light dessert will be served at 6:30pm, followed by the program at 7pm in Lewis Hall.
    Last spring many of us enjoyed a presentation by young Martha Washington as portrayed by Colonial Williamsburg interpreter Katherine Pittman.  We now have the opportunity to visit with our nation’s first First Lady as portrayed by Mary Wiseman.
    We are delighted to welcome back to Bruton our friend Mary Wiseman, who sang with the choir for thirty years before moving to northern Virginia. She has recently returned to the area. Her stellar career in Historical Interpretation and Living History has led her through years at Colonial Williamsburg, where she worked with character development and interpretation, with a focus on women’s studies.  Her characters included Mrs. Geddy, Mrs. Powell, Mrs. Randolph, and most notably Martha Dandridge Custis Washington.
    From Williamsburg, Mary moved to Northern Virginia, and for almost fifteen years she was the quintessential Lady Washington at Mt. Vernon. There she entertained children, VIPs, and her greatest followers -- the public who make pilgrimages to Mt. Vernon in search of the Washington mystique.
    Plan now to be educated and entertained by Lady Washington at our “Sweet Discourse” on September 26.  All are invited. Bring your friends and neighbors!
