SAVE THE DATE | August 26, 2020

SAVE THE DATE!!

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

The year 2020 will be a big year for so many things.  Among them is the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the League of Women Voters in Chicago on February 14, 1920.

We will also be celebrating the passage of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 1920.  Passage of this amendment was the culmination of years of work by our foremothers working for the women’s vote.

In honor of both of these anniversaries, our League of Women Voters Dearborn-Dearborn Heights will be holding a special Centennial Dinner celebration on Wednesday, August 26, 2020.  Our wonderful venue is the Byblos Banquet Center where we celebrated the League’s 95th anniversary in 2015.

Please put this on your calendar and share with your friends.  We hope for a great attendance of members and guests celebrating these two special birthdays.
