Meet at the Montrose Regional Library parking lot to carpool to the Ridgway Farmer's Market Celebration of Women's Equality Day. Please come dressed in period costume to commemorate the 1920 certifiation of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world's first women's rights convention, in Seneca Falls, New York.

LWV members will interact with the market crowd and will be on hand at the Ridgway library to assist with voter registration.
