19th Amendment Centennial Women’s Suffrage Celebration
Join us in celebrating 100 years since the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote nationwide in August 1920. (Oregon passed women’s suffrage even earlier, in 1912.) The Grace Notes from the Eugene Women’s Choral Society will perform two numbers from their recent Rise Up! Concert, and branch members will perform a Reader’s Theater about women’s suffrage. Our 19th Amendment table top exhibit also will be on display. Free and open to the public. Location: Westminster Presbyterian Church, 777 Coburg Rd., Eugene. (map)
