DAWC Hosts Tea Program at Sycamore Depot on Sunday

Educational? Entertaining? Enlightening? Intriguing? Yes, to all of the above. It’s the the DeKalb Area Women’s Center’s annual Herstorical Tea Program on Sunday.

This year’s program will use the theme chosen by Northern Illinois University’s Women’s Studies Program – the 50th Anniversary of The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan.

The public event will feature many local women’s voices – readings, recollections, reactions, music along with cookies, and hot tea at the new home of the DeKalb County Community Foundation, the recently renovated Sycamore Depot at 475 DeKalb Ave. There may even be a little shopping available.

The program and accompanying Women’s History Month displays furnished by the DAWC will be from 3 to 5 p.m. The DAWC will be raising the value of coins embossed with women’s images on them just for the afternoon, so admission will be one Lincoln paper bill or one Susan B. Anthony silver coin or one Sacagawea golden dollar.
