League’s Birthday Celebration

Join us for LWV Umpqua Valley’s birthday celebration on Feb. 13.

Thursday, Feb. 13th at Noon to 2PM
Roseburg Library in the South Umpqua Room

The actual birthdate for the national League is Feb. 14, 1920.

Although our League was not in existence as soon as the national League was, Roseburg was not far behind. Although not officially organized until 1961 (see our history), Roseburg was active in state League affairs and with the national League. In 1989 LWV Umpqua Valley became a valid 501(c)(4) tax exempt organization.

This year we celebrate along with hundreds of other local Leagues around the country the centennial birthday of the League and the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.

Please come to celebrate whether you are a member or not!

Come for cake, some history, some discussion, ask questions, and enjoy your neighbors.

For more information, call [541] [672] [1914].
