SOUP-UP THE LEAGUE + FIRST MEETING OF THE YEAR. Our first meeting of the year will be held at the Presbyterian Church located at 502 North Eighth Street at 5 pm on Tuesday, September 22nd. We begin with a simple supper of assorted soups, a variety of breads with butter, desserts and beverages.

Next, we will have entertainment provided by Bev and Stu Smith of Heritage Players. They will be presenting a program on Olympia Brown (1835-1926), a woman suffrage activist and early U. S. woman minister ordained in 1863 with full denominational authority. She served Universalist churches in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Racine, Wisconsin. She joined protesters picketing the White House and President Woodrow Wilson in 1918 for denying women the right to vote. She also belonged to the organization which changed its name from the National American Woman Suffrage Association to the League of Women Voters. When she was finally able to vote in 1920, she was one of the few suffragists active since the 1860s to do so. "The Flame of Her Spirit Still Burns Today!"

After this performance, we will be presenting brief information updates on the League about the various programs happening at the national, state, and local levels.

We hope that all of you can attend this meeting. It will give you the opportunity to reconnect with friends, both old and new. Bring a friend, significant other, and or your spouse. This is open to the public and all are invited to attend. If you need a ride, please contact Cathy Cole at 553-8757.
