Historical society’s program to celebrate centennial of women’s suffrage in the U.S., and how the battle was fought and won in Greene County, too

Mikki Schwarzkopf, an active member of the Greene County Historical Society and one of the group’s leading researchers, will present a program Friday, Oct. 1, in Rippey that will celebrate the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in the U.S.  And she will explain how local activists in the suffrage movement fought and won the battle right here in Greene County, too.

Schwarzkopf wrote an excellent story on all this a year ago, and you can do some preparation for the program, if you want, by reading that story on the website www.greenecountyiowahistoricalsociety.org.

The program, which will be held at Rippey’s United Methodist Church, will be preceded at 12 noon by lunch, which will cost $8 for members of the historical society or $10 for others. Historical society members should RSVP to our community contacts by Tuesday, Sept. 28. Others from the public are welcome for lunch, too, and they should reserve their places by calling program chairperson Margaret Hamilton in Jefferson at 515-386-4408.

The program, which will start about 12:45 p.m. is free and all are welcome.
