Ansonia – Monday, July 10, 2017: Please join us for our 27th Annual Silver Tea on Monday, July 10th, from 2:00 – 4:30 pm. This year Sheryl Faye will present “Eleanor Roosevelt – The First Lady of the World”.
After suffering through an unhappy childhood, and losing her parents and one of her brothers, Eleanor figured out where she fit in and could make a difference. She grew up and became an American politician. The longest-serving First Lady of the United States, she was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention. Eleanor advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. She became one of the first delegates to The United Nations.
Refreshments will be served. Raffle and door prizes are available. Cost is $30 per person. Please call (203) 735-1908 or (203) 676-0324 for tickets or more information.
