LWV McLean County has been busy this fall beginning with marching in the local Labor Day Parade. Everyone was decked out in their red, white and blue finery, including the cutest little Leaguer-in-Training. It's never too early to start showing our children how to Make Democracy Work!
The League's 95th anniversary celebration of the League of Women Voters was also the culmination of a years' worth of good work. Proclamations from the State, Normal Town Council and Bloomington City Council were shared.
During the celebration they honored (retired) Judge John Freese with the Florence Fifer-Bohrer award for outstanding service to the community. Heartland Community College student Mallory Carroll received the McLean County League of Women Voters scholarship in memory of Julie Sullivan, a former League president who had recently passed away. Carroll is undecided about a major but she is excited to become more involved in the League and helping young people at the college become interested in membership and League projects.
National Voter Registration Day
Our Leagues were busy on National Voter Registration Day 2015 with over 1400 registrations and the counts are still coming in! While some observed the official day, Tuesday, 9/22/2015, others declared it NVR Week.
However our Leagues chose to observe National Voter Registration, they outdid themselves. Keep up the good work Making Democracy Work!
