Claremont League of Women Voter’s 75th anniversary
At its fall opening meeting this Sunday, September 15, the local League of Women Voters will celebrate its 75th anniversary by illustrating past accomplishments with storytelling lead by Barbara Rugeley and by looking toward its future challenges with table talks led by board members and past presidents.
The planning committee—made up of co-chairs Ruth Currie and Jerry Klasik, board members Anne Bellemin, Barbara Rugeley and Katie Gerecke—are building a program that will reflect the work of the league of the past and the promise of the mission that “encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government through action and advocacy.”
The Ordway Award and the Carolyn Beatty Award will be presented, as well as a display of materials from the League’s archives. The meeting will be from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Hughes Center Padua Room, 1700 Danbury Rd. The meeting includes an ice cream social with many toppings and some non-sugar desserts.
