The September League meeting will focus on plans for the upcoming year.  There are the things we always do:  voter registration, Vote 411, the Voter Guides, candidate forums, getting out the vote for the next election.  But there are new ideas floating around the state and national leagues, too.

On 9/19/19, surely an auspicious date, we’ll be hosting our state League executive administrator, Aileen McMurrer. She will lead us in learning more about who we are and what we can accomplish to empower voters and defend democracy this year.  Please join us.  We need to hear YOUR voice!

Expect to:

  • Enjoy many dinner choices in the Schreiner Diner (across the patio from the student center) for $9.45 plus tax beginning at 5:00 (optional)
  • Pick up coffee or tea in the Lion’s Den (first floor of the student center) and join us in the River Room for visiting before the meeting
  • Convene at 6:00 for a business meeting followed by a round table program focused on member discussion
  • Hear about the state initiative for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Leave inspired and with a better idea of what you can do this year to make a difference for your community, state and country

To begin a year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the League of Women Voters of Texas, LWV Hill Country Texas will have a booth at the Texas Music Heritage Day on Friday, September 27th from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Robbins-Lewis Pavilion at Schreiner University. Our theme is “Standing on the shoulders of the ones who’ve come before.” We’ll have a booth with two tables: one table for THEN “We fought for the vote...” with educational materials and music from the suffrage movement in Texas, and a second table for NOW “…Now use it” with voting materials and voter registration.  We’ll have LWV members in Suffragist white dresses and some in contemporary dress, hats, and sashes at the booth and strolling around the venue with posters like those used by the Suffragists. 

Suffrage outfit materials

If you’d like to join us that day, please email Alicia Boyett, the volunteer coordinator for this event, at  aliciashook11@gmail.com .  And come to a poster and hat making party on Saturday, September 21st at 1 p.m. at the home of JoAnn McKinzey. Email JoAnn at  jomckinsey@gmail.com  for details and directions to her home. Please bring a hat and artificial flowers and other materials to make your Suffragist hat. Materials for the posters will be supplied, but please bring your creativity.
