Friendship Tea 2022
Saturday, November 12
This year’s Friendship Tea was held on from 10:30am – 1:00pm. It is a unique time to enjoy friends and family and is open to women, men, and children of all ages who can remain seated for the duration!
The photos on this page show some of the festivities from our 2019, 2020 (virtual), and 2021 teas including the wonderfully decorated tables set by the hostesses.
Our 2021 tea at Unity Church included lots of silent auction items, an estate sale, door prizes and wonderful company. The background of live piano music added a sense of quiet elegance as we shared our tea time with friends. We all sipped a cup of tea as each hostess shared special memories about her tea table. Then we were treated to an entertaining presentation about Jackson history by noted Jackson Historian, Linda Hass. She delighted us with some unusual and overlooked stories about Jackson.
Our 2020 tea was a virtual celebration of the 100th anniversary of the League of Women Voters and women’s suffrage. We had an inspiring visit from Alice Paul who shared a bit about her life and struggles in the women’s suffragette movement of 100 years ago.
This fall will be our fourth Friendship Tea and we hope you will join us. And as you can, please donate jewelry (new and gently used) as-well-as items for door prizes and other unique items. Our Tea is our major fund raising event that provides us with necessary flexibility to carry out our mission of: EMPOWERING VOTERS and DEFENDING DEMOCRACY.
