LWVGH Honors Treasurer
At their meeting on August 9, 2017, LWVGH members honored Beverly Galvin, our retiring treasurer of many years. Although she will no longer be responsible for the financial well-being or LWVGH, Bev will continue to be a member of our organization – hopefully for many years to come.
Thank you Bev for a job well done!
LWVGH Participates in National Night Out
August 1, 2017
“National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
“Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.” (https://natw.org/about) more….
LWV-GH is, like its namesake, a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Since 1920, the League of Women Voters has fought to improve our systems of government and impact public policies. LWVGH is a local grassroots offshoot of LWV; its strength and importance come from its unique decentralized structure that works in harmony with our state and national organizations.
