President's Report

Hello to all

Here we are in a new season of endings and beginnings! End of a school year, graduations, spring, and all the hope that results from anticipation of the adventures ahead! As I begin my second year as President, I am again filled with respect and awe for this organization of strong, capable women (and men!) The things our volunteer League accomplishes never ceases to amaze me! We have much to look forward to this year! We are working on our Centennial celebration preparations- if you would like to help decorate a Christmas tree for the festival this year, text or email me! We would love to get started with some beautiful suffragist ornaments!

Our kickoff with the State League will be Aug. 24 in Wichita. Did you know that Wichita was the first League in the country? We will be partnering with KU on a number of events including a kickoff Sept 24 at the Dole Center. Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for more details, but mark your calendar!

We need your help to make our League effective and efficient. Below are the Committees for the upcoming year.
