2015 Pink Tea Report
The Annual Pink Tea was held on May 9, 2015 inside the Governor’s Mansion. This year Pa Bernard and Mona Reno came up with a great program about Nevada women legislators. Handheld signs for several individuals were made with a photo on one side and a brief legislative biography on the other side. Attendees held the signs in front of their face and read the back as a tribute to the woman legislator.
There were 29 attendees at this years Pink Tea. Several attendees wore period garments which gave an elegant ambiance to the event. Special guests were Emma George and Sam Funk who are members of the Silver State Young Chautauqua group. Janette Dean a UNR political activist for women’s rights gave us a summary of the status of the Equal Rights Amendment in 2015.
This is a wonderful event that we want to share with more people. The attendance has been geng smaller each year for several years. Beginning in 2016 the event will be rebranded as “High Tea in the Governor’s Mansion.” We will still try to hold the event in May, but it will not be on Mother’s Day weekend. We hope these changes will make this a more popular event and a greater fundraiser. The program will still be focused on Nevada Women’s History.
