BRAVO! Here at Suffrage Wagon News Channel we’ve been advocating for years that tea become a theme of our celebrations. Chef Cutting at Suffrage Wagon Cooking School gave video demonstrations on how to make tea, coffee, and fortune cookies.

And now, the tea theme has been taking off. A special program about Alice Paul by Zoe Nicholson (“Tea with Alice and Me”) is scheduled for Sarasota, Florida at the New College of Sarasota on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 5 p.m. after a successful premier in California earlier this year.

And the Matilda Joslyn Gage Center in Fayetteville, NY is offering a tea and fortune cookie special package for Mother’s Day 2018. See below:

Struggling to find the perfect gift for the woman who kissed your owies, cut the crusts off your peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and proudly displayed your art projects on her refrigerator? Forget the flowers. Cancel the brunch reservations. Instead…


  • A Gage cup for her
  • Three renewing chamomile/lavender tea bags
  • Three fortune cookies with quotes from Matilda Joslyn Gage inside
  • Three Gage – themed napkins
  • A lovely, hand-made Mother’s Day card
  • And as a special addition: Did you know that Mother’s Day began in 1870 as a call on the women of the world to unite for peace? She’ll get a copy of the original Mother’s Day Proclamation which begins, “Arise, then, women of this day!”

All this for just $30! Shipping and tax included! Or pick your gift up at the Gage Center for $25. The folks celebrating the life of Matilda Joslyn Gage in Fayetteville, NY will ship this Mother’s Day gift attractively packaged to her in time for Mother’s Day, and even sign the card for you if you act quickly.

Your gift makes your mother a stakeholder in this Center of Education and Dialogue on issues of peace and freedom. Matilda Joslyn Gage’s support for abolition, women’s rights, and religious freedom, her respect for indigenous peoples, and her influence on the author of the “Wizard of Oz” are reflected in each of the rooms of the Center, inspiring us to think for ourselves and reflect on our values. To order, call 315-637-9511.

Follow the suffrage wagon. Here at Suffrage Wagon News Channel we have been publishing since 2009. In other news—the votes for women exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY will close on Mother’s Day 2018. Make sure you see this remarkable exhibit.

And during April 2018, the “Spirit of 1776” suffrage campaign wagon used by Edna Kearns in 1913 was celebrated with the unveiling of a heritage road marker in downtown Huntington, NY, a project that’s part of the marker program of the William G. Pomeroy Foundation. Sign up to receive our emails when there are new postings!
