First Ladies Tea to be Held
at Eisenhower Presidential Library Courtyard

ABILENE, Kan. - Treat your first lady to a First Ladies Tea at the Eisenhower Presidential Library courtyard. The tea is set for 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 10, and features a program on America's First Ladies titled "Unusual for Their Time."   


This event is open to everyone and reservations are required by May 5. The menu includes gourmet items such as lavender lemon scones, tea sandwiches and desserts.  


"First Ladies Man" Andy Och will share his stories of adventure as he spent over a year traveling to nearly every location that helped tell the stories of every First Lady of the United States of America. Och is an award-winning television and multi-media producer most recently creating video footage for the C-SPAN series "First Ladies: Influence and Image." He covered Martha Washington through Michelle Obama and visited with people and places all across the country. From Colonial Williamsburg to Stanford University, he was privy to some of the nation's most treasured collections and historical landmarks.  


Och's recent project and travels put him in a small and rare group of people. He is responsible for one of the most vast and complete collections of material and information about this unique sorority of women ever assembled. Andy Och IS the First Ladies Man, and he is excited to share the stories of his adventures.


Reservations are required by Monday, May 5. Send a $15 check payable to Eisenhower Presidential Library, Attn: First Ladies Tea, P.O.Box 339, Abilene, Kansas 67410.
