The October 10 “Passing the Torch” mural presentation to the community is rescheduled to Sunday, November 1 at 2:30. Saturday's forecast of high winds and rain has proved to help us set the stage for our event to take place just prior to Election Day 2020. If weather conditions on November 1st are unfavorable, the event will be held virtually at a later date after November 1.
We are excited about this opportunity to not only focus on honoring the early suffragists, but also to set the stage for reminding everyone, especially women, to vote if they have not already done so.
