Suffrage centenary to be celebrated online tomorrow

Join the Historical Society for the commemoration of 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

The Historical Society of Haddonfield will be hosting a virtual program on Aug. 26, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote. The Nineteenth Amendment was adopted on Aug. 26, 1920.

Starting at 11:40 a.m., we will welcome independent historian Lisa Hendrickson to learn more about the roles that South Jersey women played in the suffrage movement. Then, at 12 p.m., our group will join the national “Toast to Tenacity” virtual celebration, which will include speakers, music from the Philadelphia Orchestra and others, and a nationwide toast at 1 p.m. to celebrate the suffragists who won voting rights for American women.

We hope you’ll join us for this mid-day celebration! Please RSVP to info@haddonfieldhistory.org and we’ll send you the Zoom link (and some basic instructions) the day of the chat.
