On January 14th, First Selectman Rudy Marconi will be the guest speaker at the League of Women Voters of Ridgefield’s Alice Paul Day and kick-off celebration for the 100th anniversaries of the founding of the League of Women Votes and the ratification of the 19th amendment. Mr. Marconi will be giving a “State of the Town” presentation.
A 30 year resident of Ridgefield, Alice Paul was one of the most influential women in America leading the successful fight for women’s right to vote and championing equal rights for women through most of the 20th century. In 2011, Mr. Marconi declared Alice Paul Day in honor of her accomplishments.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, January 14th at 10:30 a.m. at Keeler Tavern’s Garden Room at 152 Main Street and join the League for coffee and conversation. It’s a great opportunity to relax on a cold winter morning with friends and learn more about Alice and what is happening in Ridgefield. The event is free and open to the public.
There will be refreshments served and a festive atmosphere. Feel free to invite your friends to celebrate with us!
The League is proud to sponsor this event and many more in 2020 that educate, inform (and entertain) our fellow community members about issues important to them and the League. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization of women and men that encourages active participation in government and voting.
