The Long Island Woman Suffrage Association visited a local fourth grade last week to talk about the contributions of Susan B. Anthony and to make colorful birthday cards in honor of her 200th Birthday on February 15th. We then sent some to the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, MA, and some to the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester NY.
We received this thoughtful thank you and photo from the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, the home where she was born and spent the early years of her life. Although it is only about ten years old, the museum is doing a great job keeping the work and spirit of Susan B. Anthony alive. It is so important for youngsters to learn about these women who worked so tirelessly to secure political equality for us all.
And besides that, we all had fun! Thanks to all the teachers and children involved.
