John James Audubon State Park Hosting ‘Mother’s Day Tea’ on May 5
HENDERSON, Ky. – John James Audubon State Park in Henderson will host a “Mother’s Day Tea” on Saturday, May 5, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Visit the beautiful Audubon Museum to honor those precious women in our lives; mothers, grandmothers and children, during this special time of the year.
The park will be having special guest speakers for the occasion, tasty appetizers and tea, as well as music by professional musician Eric Scales. Author Linda Hawkins, from Morgantown, will speak briefly on her books featuring teas and offer a bit of light humor on the history of the teas. Historian Frank Nally will provide insight on the founder of Mother’s Day.
In conjunction with the “Mother’s Day Tea,” the museum will feature the exhibit “A Mother’s Touch” by eight tri-state female artists who will showcase those loving ties to our children and grandchildren. Exhibiting artists are: Jan Frasier, Carol Bosko, Iris Gentry, Shirley Davis, Teresa Heath, Susie Rideout, Ginger Adams and Cathy Hedgespeth.
