Passing the Suffrage Torch at the bridge in Lumberville

 

 

The Symbolic Re-enactment of the Passing the Torch Ceremony on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at the Lumberville/Raven Rock Pedestrian Bridge on the NJ/PA state line was a great success. The centennial observance of winning the long fight for women's suffrage was the brainchild of Ellen Maak.
 
The Bucks County LWV was a great partner for this celebration and provided a great local turnout. The event was featured, in color, on the front pages of the Bucks Courier Times and the Bucks County Herald. Ellen, Nicole, Elaine, Sharon, Kyla, Pat Thompson, and Earlene Cancilla all were there for the Lawrence League.

Celebrating the  100th Birthday

of The League of Women Voters!

February 14, 1920

Members of the LWV of Lawrence Township & Friends met on the steps of the Trenton Free Public Library at 120 Academy Street in Trenton to celebrate the centennial of the founding of the LWV.
 
The women's suffrage colors are Gold, White and Violet, and we wore our 'Votes for Women' sashes.
 
We honored the 150-year struggle endured by so many determined women who came before us to win the right to vote!
Inside the library you can visit our "Women Power the Vote" historical displays that tell the story of our struggle!
