International Women’s Day, March 8th, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
On March 7th (the day before International Women’s Day) the Thrift Shop Committee will be hosting a tea to celebrate the achievements of women and our League. The event will consist of an “Introduction to Tea” with Debbie Heth, owner of A Taste of Britain, “Tea and the Women’s Suffrage Movement,” talk with Jennifer G. Morgan, JLP Past-President and Sustainer, a fascinator making demonstration, and a discussion about the achievements of our League this year.
We are offering a pickup of afternoon tea boxes which include 8 tea sandwiches, a scone, 3 pastries, and tea to brew at home. For an additional amount you can purchase a tea cup and saucer set from the Thrift Shop and receive one Ways & Means credit for the event. Or, you can brew your own tea, or pickup from your favorite local café, and join us for the virtual event. All participants will be entered in a drawing to win a fabulous gift from the Thrift Shop.
The boxed afternoon tea includes 8 tea sandwiches, a scone, 3 pastries, and tea to brew at home. Pickup locations will be at the Thrift Shop on Saturday, March 6 and in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia on Sunday, March 7. Both pickup locations will be outside, with masks required.
This event is open to all. Members may invite guests, however tickets must be purchased on the member site. Venture in the Thrift Shop for tea related outfits, teacups, and more!
