Equali-tea: a DIY Suffragist Tea Party
Thursday March 7, 10AM-11:30AM

Come celebrate women’s right to vote at our Suffragist Tea Party! The Suffragists used to sell cookbooks and host tea parties to spread their message and raise money to campaign for the vote. To honor this legacy, we’ll be making tea sandwiches using recipes from these cookbooks. Afterwards, we’ll partake in tea and enjoy our sandwiches and dessert.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Possible allergens include nuts, dairy, and eggs. Participants may need to use knives, mandolines, cookie cutters, and other sharp kitchenware during the cooking portion of this program. Please email LDetomaso@solanocounty.com if you have any questions.
