High Tea with Susan B.
Saturday, May 13th from 3-5:00 PM. The Friends of the Rush Library invite you to their annual High Tea Fundraiser to be held at the library. Wear your fancy hat or fascinator, and bring your favorite china tea cup if you wish; enjoy the company of your friends and neighbors for this charming afternoon social.
This year, to honor the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, we have invited Jeanne Gehret to portray Susan B. Anthony in period costume, using the suffragist’s own words. Feel free to dress up as a suffragette!
High Tea includes sweet and savory delights. Bringing your favorite cookies or dessert to share is also an optional, lovely tradition at our Tea. Tickets are $15.00 per person, on sale at the library. Proceeds benefit our Summer Reading Program.
