On Zoom


This is a “Membership Benefit and Fundraising” event to kick off of the 2021 Membership Campaign of the League of Women Voters of Columbia- Boone County. It is free and open to all, but we are encouraging people to join the LWVCBC if they are not members and/or to donate, as they are able.

Please invite your family and friends to this thoughtful event!

The Revolutionists” is a play that Elizabeth Palmieri directed and prepared for Stephens College theatre students last spring, for the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment and ratification of women’s right to vote. Due to the pandemic, they were unable to present the play.  Director Palmieri has generously agreed to do a special performance of scenes from the play for the LWVCBC. The quality of theatre she directs and performs is exceptional. 

Here is a link to the program. You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: Oct 10, 2020 07:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
