Come to Tea, May 5th at the Awbury Arboretum


The artful table, colorful and laden with bite-sized treats … sipping brewed tea from china cups, while gazing out at the stately grounds of the Awbury Arboretum – what is it about a tea that brings out our better natures?  Last year, the three Weavers Way Dining For Women chapters collaborated to produce this memorable event, on the Sunday PRIOR to Mother’s Day.  Now partnering with WWCP, we both cordially invite you to our Second Annual Pre-Mothers Day Tea on Sunday, May 5, from 2:00 to 4:00.   

Inspired by Nicholas Kristof‘s idea to move the apostrophe, so Mother’s Day becomes Mothers’ Day, a local AND global event, we created an experience that both delighted the attendees and supported low-income mothers.  A highlight, the May Pole dance and other rites of spring performed by The Morris Dancers, was generally adored and the Morris Dancers are coming back for a repeat performance.

Tickets are available at checkout at the Coop – Stephanie Johnson, a beloved Weavers Way staff member and Co-Chair of the tea, will surely remind you if you shop at the Mount Airy store!  Tickets are also available at the Weavers Way website, via PayPal, or by check mailed to Weavers Way.  While tickets are discounted in advance, we also welcome walk-ins on May 5th.

The tea is free to those 90 and older, as well as children under 10.  For more information, contact Co-Chairs Margaret Guthrie,, Stephanie Johnson,, or WWCP Director Jill Fink,
