BWAHS to host tea time for moms


SUNBURY — The Big Walnut Area Historical Society will hold its annual Mother’s Day Tea at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 13, in the Myers Inn Museum. Traditional homemade savories, scones and sweets will be served with tea in the original home of Lawrence Myers, the co-founder of Sunbury.

Originally, the tea was for mothers and their daughters, but this eliminated mothers whose daughters have left the community, so the event evolved into a tea for mothers. Other than the two years the museum was closed for COVID, tea has been served annually since Alice Chapan started the event in 2010, usually on Mother’s Day weekend.

This year, mothers must register by calling or texting 614-505-9194. Admission to the tea is by donation, which will be collected at the tea. Sorry, food and tea may not be caffeine, gluten or sugar free.

Space limits the tea to 30 people, so be sure to register soon.

The Myers Inn Museum is located at the southwest corner of Columbus and Granville streets facing Sunbury Square. It is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays or by appointment. Admission is by donation.
