We’re having a tea party!

Join us for YWCA Lancaster’s Spring Garden Tea Party

You’re  invited to tea on Wednesday, May 16, at our home on 110 North Lime Street in downtown Lancaster.

Decades ago, YWCA Lancaster held high teas for its supporters, and we’re pleased to be resurrecting that tradition. These elegant, intimate teas are a way for us to get acquainted. We’ll share our heritage while celebrating our commitment to our mission. Enjoy tea, then tour our historic home. Did you know that this architecturally significant building has housed YWCA Lancaster since 1918? It was designed by C. Emlen Urban, who was the leading architect in the Lancaster area from the 1890s through the 1920s.

We’ll also tell you a bit about our many programs, all of which benefit the greater Lancaster County area: child development services, counseling and empowerment services, education for women and families, residence program, social justice advocacy and training, and more.

We will be serving traditional light tea fare, baked goods, and teas provided by La Petite Patisserie Boutique Bakery in Lancaster. Hats and gloves are suggested, but not required. We will have some on hand to borrow!

The teas take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited; please register here to reserve your space.  We hope you’ll join us.

Thank you to our partner, la Petite Patisserie!
