The LWV of Evanston turns 100 in 2022!
How will the LWV of Evanston Observe its 100th anniversary? A committee has begun the 2022 anniversary planning process and they will welcome your help. Discussion at the first meeting highlighted a desire to take a look at the League from the historical perspective, but to also focus on how the Evanston League will contribute to the community in the future. Members have begun sifting through League records archived at the Evanston History Center to learn more about our story, the first step to connecting past issues with current community interests and challenges.
If you are a life member and willing to talk with us about your League experiences, if you are interested in doing some research, if you could assist with turning selected themes and historical facts into articles or displays, or if you just have ideas or an interest in local history, please email us.
