Leagues around the state are doing their work--studying, educating and the like--but often no one else is aware of what is being accomplished. This section is designed to create awareness of some of these ideas and to make studies and other materials available for use by others to avoid "reinventing the wheel." Leagues should feel free to use information posted here for their own purposes. In deference to the effort that has been put into these topics, please provide appropriate citations.
We met before the holidays with Ellen Dorney, Elizabeth Yingling, Talita Lopez, and Jill Aubert. They devised questions for Vote 411 and very successfully handled the publicity, getting flyers printed for the folders that are distributed by elementary schools every Thursday, getting the notice into City Scene, and posting flyers around the town. The Connection Newspapers and Fairfax Times both reported on the event.
Virginia State Board Co-President Lois Page, and Communications Director Ron Page were guests of Washington County President Merry Jennings for the Oct. 29 production. Lois had the opportunity to serve as a panelist and welcomed the chance to talk about the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial. They also explored with the play producers the idea of putting on the play in the northern Virginia area.
Panel members (l-r) Page, Jennings and Bush, answer questions and discuss the moral message of the production.
