The Centennial Commemoration committee held its first meeting on August 13, starting to develop plans for events we can create, co-sponsor, or collaborate on. Its members would like to organize a conversation of current members' experiences of the Amherst League of earlier decades for a view of our earlier history. Involving students, from middle school to college, in the celebration of woman's suffrage is a priority. Here perhaps we can collaborate with teachers with the same goal. Could we have a field trip to sites associated with workers for woman's suffrage? These are some of the ideas the committee is considering.
Come and join us, bringing your own ideas and expertise. Contact Adrienne Terrizzi if you are interested in joining the committee or have suggestions about commemorative events.
