Preservation Open House
Take a step back—way back—and take your eyes off your phones to experience a bit of your historic past at the kick-off Open House for 2016 Archaeology and Preservation Month. Expect hands-on activities like corn grinding and face painting for kids and families during this educational and entertaining path into Utah's dynamic 10,000-year-old history. Throughout the month of May, organizations across the state will host more than 40 special events to help celebrate Utah's amazing natural beauty and historic preservation. Salt Lake Community College, South Campus, 1575 S. State, 801-245-7254, Saturday, May 7, noon-3 p.m., free, open to public, History.Utah.gov

Silver Tea Fundraiser
Hats and gloves and pretty dresses abound at the Woman's Board 100th Anniversary Silver Tea. The first Silver Tea was held May 10, 1916, when the Woman's Board, just 25 members strong, raised $33 at the tea for the college. It is now the board's most popular fundraising effort. Over the years, the Silver Tea has raised some $40,000 for student scholarships. The entire family can take part in a silent auction, flowers and plants sale, children's crafts and afternoon high tea. All proceeds go toward Westminster student scholarships. Behnken Field House Tea Garden, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 East, 801-832-2735, Saturday, May 14 , 1-4 p.m., $35 per adult, $15 per child (12 and younger), WestminsterCollege.edu/SilverTea

There will be presentations on rug care and informative weaving demonstrations. A special reception will celebrate the historic friendship between J.L. Hubbell and renowned artist Maynard Dixon.
