Save the Date: Kimberly Jensen and the Suffrage Players at Cornelius Pass

Two weeks hence--when it may very well still be the beautiful Oregon summer that it is, finally, today--come on out and celebrate the sunshine and the centennial of women's suffrage at the McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse.

"Oregon Women Vote: What's Suffrage Got To Do With It?"
What: Oregon Encyclopedia History Night
When: July 20, 2010, 5:30-8:30 p.m. (history program at 7:00)
Where: McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, Hillsboro, Oregon
Who: Presented by Kimberly Jensen and the Suffrage Players

The event is jointly sponsored by the Century of Action: Oregon Women Vote, 1912–2012 Project and the Oregon Encyclopedia. Scholar (and blogger) Kimberly Jensen will be leading the Suffrage Players in a reenactment of some of the key debates of the 1912 campaign. As the web site notes, "They might even sing."

Don't miss it! For more information, check the project web site.

Thanks for posting details about this event. We hope everyone who attends will leave with much more knowledge about how Oregon got the vote, will be humming a new tune, and will have had fun along the way!
