Join us at The Dayton Woman's Club on Sunday, May 22 from 3-5 pm for a traditional High Tea service featuring a delicious assortment of finger sandwiches, scones, and petit fours at our historic Victorian mansion located in downtown Dayton.
Learn about the Founding Mothers of Dayton – women who left a wonderful legacy of service to our community and from whom we still benefit today. In 1889, the women of Dayton founded the Women’s Literary Club. Other women’s clubs soon followed — each with their own purposes that benefited our community including patriotism, scholarships, child welfare, interest-free loans for young women, housing, and shelter for runaway children. Some of our own Living Legacy Ladies from The Dayton Woman’s Club will be in attendance to share their stories as well.
Our guest speaker, T. Douglas Toles, Creative Director of Toles Media, will share the next step of literature with our own Empowered Women, “History of Dayton Women and The Dayton Woman’s Club”, a book by Children’s Historical Publishing.
Tickets are $25 per person and advance purchase is required. Please visit our website to buy tickets online at daytonwomansclub.org
