Mother’s Day Tea
May 10, 2014
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
On May 8, 1914, the United States Senate and House of Representatives passed a joint resolution establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. The next day, May 9, President Wilson issued a proclamation, an excerpt of which is below:
”Now, Therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the said Joint Resolution, do hereby direct the government officials to display the United States flag on all government buildings and do invite the people of the United States to display the flag at their homes or other suitable places on the second Sunday in May as a public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.”
What better way of celebrating the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day than attending an afternoon Tea with your mother. Join us and celebrate your mother on Saturday, May 10 from 1 pm – 3 pm at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. The cost is $20.00 per person ($18.00 for League of Friends Members) and includes admission to the museum.
