The 100th Anniversary Celebration
Plans are well under way for celebrating the League’s 100th anniversary. The planning team has identified several events and community displays to honor our history, and to build a stronger League as we move into the future. These events include participation in Fremont’s July Fourth Parade, a special movie for the community shown at Niles Essanay Theatre, displays at all tri-city libraries, a teen contest featuring a poetry slam/rap, a community open house, and proclamations before all three City Councils. All events are designed for our loyal members, as well as for the greater community. We’ like to bring in new members and to highlight the history and accomplishments of the League. As the anniversary planning team moves forward, we will be asking our members for their assistance with specific tasks. Please consider offering an enthusiastic YES, when asked to help honor and highlight your League.
Dear League Members:
On March 29th we had the pleasure and privilege of hearing from a panel of four amazing local women as we celebrated Women’s History Month. We heard from Educator Sandra Bowes Edwards, Ohlone College Trustee Sue Chan, and City of Hayward’s Councilmember Aisha Wauhab. The moderator was former Vice Mayor and LWVFNUC member Anu Natarajan. These women have been “first” in many areas and we got to hear of their struggles to break ground and what it took to insist on a place at the table of policy making. Kudos to Program Director Martha Kreeger for pulling together this outstanding panel and many thanks to her Program committee team for arranging for delicious refreshments and handling logistics.
We continue our planning for our 100th anniversary celebration and it looks like the first main event may be participating in Fremont’s 4th of July Parade! Several other ideas and plans are being set in motion including a movie in a historic theater about the struggle for the right to vote for women. In preparation for the 100th anniversary celebration, I am currently reading a fascinating account of the final ratification by Tennessee for the 19th amendment. The book is entitled “The Women’s Hour” and the author is journalist Elaine Weiss. I highly recommend it and might write a book review in a later voter. If you would like to join the committee, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have some really exciting news to share: League Member and co-founder of the Parkland Voter Movement Project and recent high school graduate, Michael Dunkle, was just notified that he is a recipient of the League of Women Voters of California’s Equity award scholarship to the LWVC 2019 biennial convention! We are planning on sending four delegates to the 2019 LWVC convention which includes me, Alex Starr, Julie Dunkle and Michael Dunkle. We are also planning on holding a caucus at the convention to share information and tools for the Parkland Voter Movement Project.
We have three other major community/member event coming up. On May 11, 2019 we will be discussing housing and then on May 20th, the topic will be the electoral college. You can visit our website at lwvfnuc.org for more information. We hope you join us at these events and if you have not yet done so, do join the league! You can join online at our website.
