Norwood LWV Annual Meeting Summary

Last Wednesday, the Norwood League of Women Voters had our Annual Meeting.  Please click here for our Annual Report Annual Report 2016 May 16.  It shows all we have done in the past year.

 

In the coming year, we will be planning Voter Registration events before the primary and the November elections.  We hope to have some educational event around the ballot questions.  These things will make the Fall a very busy one this year.  I encourage you all to join us in some of the upcoming events.  The Voter Service committee will be meeting in mid-June to plan a calendar for the fall.  If you are interested in attending the meeting and/or helping with our Voter Service events, please contact our president, Carol MacLeay or Sarah Cullen, Voter Service Chair.

 

We also voted the following local study for next year:  The Study of Renewable Energy and Climate Change: How These Can Affect Norwood Residents.  If this is something that interests you, please join the study committee.

May/June Bulletin is Available

Please check out our bulletin for updated information on Norwood League events.
