Saturday, October 22nd, 10am to noon

This is an event open to women age 18 and over.  Our guest speaker with be our very own Ruth Kron with the theme “The Power of One”.  Anyone who thinks one individual does not have much effect has not been in a room with one mosquito! Our vote counts and soon a very controversial presidential election will be upon us. We are not going to talk about the current candidates. Rather we will look at the history of voting- is it a right or a privilege? Who can vote? What challenges did women and African Americans face in order to win the RIGHT to vote? Don’t take the vote lightly. Ruth will also briefly discuss her experience as an archaeology student in Israel excavating in the more than 2,000 year old Biblical city of Beersheba in the Negev Desert. There will also be a brief business meeting to update your officers, upcoming events, and LWML news.  We would like to coordinate a pot luck brunch so please sign up in the narthex if you plan to attend.  Contact Barbara McHenry with questions at 334-2604.
