LWVHC UPDATES
February 10, 2019
"In our work and in our living, we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction. "    -- Audre Lorde
Program: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Feb. 21, 11:30 - 1 pm, Hendersonville Co-op

Our League has recently adopted a new policy for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Let's begin a discussion of the meaning of these terms to us personally and as a League.  Bring your lunch or pick up something yummy in the Co-op and join us.

Additional parking is available behind the Self-Help Credit Union next door.  The event is free and open to the public. LWVHC celebrates Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by welcoming all members of our community.

 
 
Annual Meeting
June 21, 2019
11:00 am 
Grand Ole Hall - Highland Lake Inn

 
The LWVHC annual meeting, scheduled for Friday, June 21, will include a silent auction and raffle fundraiser.  We’re hoping to get donations that will thrill our members and provide us with additional, vital operating funds to support the League’s advocacy and educational programming.  Will you help?  We’ll need everyone’s support to make this event the success we know it can be.
 
What you can do: Think about your favorite people and service workers.  Maybe one or more would be willing to donate a service or product.  Consider your favorite salon, massage therapist, theater company, florist, artist, restaurant, country club, winery, art gallery, . . . consider a weekend get-away at your vacation home, or teaching a cooking or art class . . . almost any personal service or gift certificate will do.  We believe if you ask folks you have a personal relationship with, they might be more than willing to contribute something to our cause.
 
All donors will be recognized in print.
 
Please contact Susan Senko at
silentauction@lwvhcnc.org  or leave a message at 828-891-8087 to make your donations, if you have questions about what can be donated, or if you would be willing to be part of our auction/raffle team.

Lunch and Learn


Thursday, March 14 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm
Hendersonville Community Co-op meeting room 
60 South Charleston Lane Hendersonville, NC

 
Sunshine Week was first celebrated in 2005 and was started by the American Society of News Editors to educate the public on the importance of open government.  Sunshine Week continues to celebrate access to public information and inform on the dangers of excessive and unnecessary secrecy by our various governmental entities.  In honor of this year’s Sunshine Week, LWVHC Observer Team invites you to a lunch and learn for League members and the general public on open records laws. We’ll get a little background on the topic and hear from a panel of journalists on their experiences and perspectives on obtaining information using these sources today. The panel will include journalists from Hendersonville Lightning and Carolina Public Press. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch and an inquiring mind!  

Additional parking is available behind the Self-Help Credit Union next door.  The event is free and open to the public. LWVHC celebrates Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by welcoming all members of our community.
