Jenny’s Talk of the Town: Annual Pink Tea celebrates women’s history

My very first adventure

On the column, that I have

Going to the Governor’s Mansion

Can’t be very bad!

I was happy to attend

The Annual Pink Tea

Held at the Governor’s Mansion

By the Nevada Women’s History Project

The Pink Tea social

Was a “thank you”

For the right to vote.

Women’s suffrage came about

With these gatherings,

Please take note.

The attire, it was period,

But not required.

The women all looked lovely

In their attire.

The silver service

Was obvious

As the tea was served

Canapés and petit fours

And little hors d’oeuvres.

It’s nice to know our women’s history

Is being preserved.

Young chautauquans

With their biographies

Present a fascinating world.

Thank you, especially

To Patti Bernard,

The nominated president.

To her, I applaud.

Thank you.
