Westminster Hosts Woman’s Board 100th Anniversary Silver Tea
Historic event has helped raise more than $40,000 each year for student scholarships
SALT LAKE CITY – Westminster will host the 100th Anniversary of the Woman’s Board Silver Tea on May 14, 2016, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Behnken Field House Tea Garden inside the Dolores Doré Emma Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center.
The historic tea event is a neighborhood tradition with attendees of all ages wearing hats, gloves and raised pinkies. The first Silver Tea was held May 10, 1916. The Woman’s Board had just 25 members and they raised $33 at the tea for the college. The event quickly became the board’s most popular fundraising effort.
“I’ve made so many memories over the years at the tea with my daughters and granddaughters,” said Sandy Morgan, Westminster’s first lady and Woman’s Board member. “It is a wonderful way to celebrate the strength of women and our power to create opportunities through education. I’m very excited to attend the anniversary tea with President Morgan this year and hope to see many other husbands, sons and supporters of student scholarships there.”
The entire family is invited to attend the anniversary celebration. The traditional Silver Tea event includes a silent auction, flowers and plants sale, children’s crafts and afternoon high tea. All proceeds go toward Westminster student scholarships. Hats and gloves are encouraged!
The event is open to the public. Price is $35 per adult, $15 per child (12 years or younger). Reservations can be made at http://www.westminstercollege.edu/silvertea or by calling 801-832-2735.

The VOA works hard in building trust with the youth living on the streets, and reaches out to the youth through the “Street Outreach” program. Together with members of the community, local businesses, elected officials and law enforcement, the power to aid will be unlimited!
With the permission and support of Erika Barney, this charity ride for the Homeless Teens was also formed as a tribute to honor her husband, Fallen Officer Douglas Barney. During his 18 years in law enforcement Officer Barney continually displayed a love of community and wanted nothing more than to help others. His love of family and serving the public was recognized by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He also served as a resource Officer at Eisenhower Junior High, and was fully supported by the students when he was struck by several battles with Cancer. The students at Eisenhower knew Doug sincerely cared about them, and held a fundraiser to help the family. Doug told KSL “I’ve always known these kids were great kids,” “I see them in the hall, and their sign for me is, ‘I’m watching you.’ And so now they’re doing that same thing. They’re watching over me.”
Please join together on May 15th to show the homeless teens in Salt Lake City they are valued and not forgotten and to Honor Officer Douglas Barney with your love and support.

Join the National Ability Center in celebrating their 30th anniversary at the annual Barn Party. The National Ability Center’s Equestrian program has helped countless numbers of participants and their families for more than 28 of the 30 years the center has been open. From talking when told they wouldn’t, to walking when told they couldn’t; participants have astonished doctors, nurses, family members and friends. The annual Barn Party is an opportunity to celebrate these achievements with the community while enjoying the summer in Park City. This event is full of activities the entire family can enjoy, including delicious food, whiskey saloon, line dancing, kids’ activities, riding demonstrations and a silent auction. Group pricing available.
Looking back on a time of tempestuous change and the want for an international taste of creative aptitude, 1931 will celebrate the ambitious beginnings and birth year of one of Salt Lake City’s most precious and enduring gems.
The 1930s were a turbulent time. Unemployment doubled, and serious drought devastated the land and drove farmers from their fields. Yet from this pressure, sparkling gems began to form the dust. The Empire State Building was constructed, the Whitney Museum opened in Manhattan, the Works Progress Administration created national treasures, and the Art Barn was born.
Since its Art Barn beginnings to becoming the Salt Lake Art Center and now, as the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, artists and appreciators have been drawn together to form the very heart and moxie of Salt Lake City’s creative essence.
Celebrate the times and history of Utah’s art culture dolled up in your most ritzy contemporary style.
