League Fiesta - October Membership Meeting
Submitted by Nancy Ekberg
We are stepping out of character a bit for our October meeting. On October 28 plan to attend our League Fair, which will highlight the Birmingham area League’s programs and projects. Join us at a fun new restaurant, The Cantina, located in historic Pepper Place. The meet and greet hour will be 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Members whose schedules permit are invited to stay for dinner. The Cantina is in the Martin Biscuit Building on 29th Street and Second Avenue South.
Come and share food, drink and conversation with other smart, interesting and involved women. The League has a study or project to interest and further every member’s education and impact on her community.
You will learn about state and local programs and projects that include a study of Alabama’s State Budget process, work on regional public transit development and monitoring environmental issues such as sewer expansion and the Cahaba River. Get details about the League’s Health Care study and join Observer Corps members who attend county commission, city and school board meetings. Learn about the Advocacy team that tracks our Legislature during sessions and testifies at public hearings. Decide to interview your Legislators to learn their views and let them know yours. Hear about the recent accomplishments of Voters Service and plan to be at the polls November 2 to encourage voters to sign a petition for a Constitutional Convention. Update your knowledge of the League’s stands on foreign policy issues and support of the United Nations.
We need your input and participation. Call Sarah McDonald at 967-2829 to tell her you will attend.
