The Beltrami County Historical Society invites the public to explore the newest exhibit:
A CENTURY OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT: LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS MINNESOTA
To celebrate the 19th Amendment’s centennial year, LWV Minnesota created a traveling exhibit to recognize the organization’s mission and history over the past century. Exhibit visitors will discover that:
“Growing from the deep roots of the suffrage movement in the 19th century, Minnesota’s non-partisan League of Women Voters uses a statewide network of local chapters to encourage informed and active participation in government, register and empower voters, work to increase understanding of public policy issues, cultivate women leaders, and influence public policy through education and advocacy."
This traveling exhibit will only be around a short while longer. If you haven’t checked it out yet, please visit the museum during open hours on Wednesday-Friday 12-4 p.m, or during the new director open house on Thursday, November 14 3:30-7 p.m. The next stop on the tour brings it to the Clearwater County History Center in Shevlin, MN where it will be on display November 17-December 20.
