Century Celebration

Please join us as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of OUR local League of Women Voters of Washington County!

On the afternoon of Sunday, March 1, an amazing lineup of women-led bands will play music and help us dance and sing our way into the next century at George’s Majestic Lounge on Dickson Street. It’s just $5 at the door. In between bands, we’ll hear from League President Bonnie Miller, Rep. Denise Ennett of Little Rock, Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan, and League member Raven Cook. Our emcee is Sunshine Broder.

Sponsorships are available (scroll down to learn more). But all are welcome to show up at the door with $5 and all lots of friends! It’s a cash bar, including our Century Celebration signature cocktail.

We are so grateful for the support of these local bands! Here’s the music lineup:
2:00: Jenna and the Soul Shakers
3:00: Dawn Cate Band
4:00: Jamie Lou and The Hullabaloo
5:00: Leah & the Mojo Doctors
6:15-7:30: Rochelle Bradshaw & Hypnotion

Come and stay the whole day, or show up for just a portion. There's a cash bar, and we'll have 100th anniversary cake and snacks.

The reason for our celebration: The national League of Women Voters was founded on Valentine’s Day, 1920. Just a month later, on March 17th, our local Political Equality League, which had been working for women’s suffrage, changed its name and became the League of Women Voters of Washington County.

A century later, the League is going strong and serving our community with voter information, issue research and advocacy. We’re grateful that you’re a part. Please help us celebrate!

Thank you to our sponsors!
