A focus on Eveyln Agnes Keith and food by the “Hungry Burro”

From the League of Women Voters,

“The League of Women Voters of Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties invites you to a Picnic in War Vets’ Park Pavilion in Olean on Tuesday, June 18 from 5:30 – 7:30.  All are welcome!

Last Fall, our group committed to a refresh of a memorial urn, which was installed in the park in the mid 1970s after being moved from its original location in front of old city hall.  The monument is dedicated to Eveyln Agnes Keith, who lived from 1852 – 1916 and was an influential member of the Olean community.  She was an early advocate for women’s right to vote, as well as the health and welfare of children and animals.  Her history has been somewhat lost over the years and our LWV chapter decided to reintroduce her monument as well as her legacy to the community.  Steve Cocca will have a presentation to do exactly that on June 18.

We will have music by Glenn Wahl, hear a song or two of the “Songs of the Suffragettes” and play a trivia game of moden empowerment music.

Supper will be provided by The Hungry Burro food truck.  To plan properly and for more information about our group,  please RSVP by June 14 to Margie McIntosh at cattarauguslwv@gmail.com or 716-904-1327. “
