“This Is Our League!” Discourse and Desserts – Sunday, September 16, 2 – 4 pm at CitySpace

Jul 29, 2018

All members and their guests are invited to a gathering of Leaguers to kick off the new League Year! With the upcoming November 6 elections, the fall season is shaping up to be very exciting.  We are energized by our commitment to voter registration.  Come and learn what the League does to further our non-partisan political activism and learn the rules of the game for League members. Enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Leaguers—those you know and those you have yet to meet—and enjoy some refreshments!

LWV CVA Membership Director Beth Alley is looking forward to assisting all Leaguers in finding opportunities within our League where members can learn about and pursue their various interests, such as voter service, environmental concerns, firearms safety, international relations, federal government, and justice reform.  So do plan to spend a few delightful hours over dessert with other Leaguers on Sunday, September 16,  2 to 4 pm at City Space on the Downtown Mall—see below for Entrance Directions to CitySpace and ADA accessibility.
