Annual Meeting – May 5th

This is a special time of year for our Morgantown-Mon County LWV.  At our annual meeting on Saturday, May 5 we will elect officers and board members for the coming year, discuss and adopt our program items, and adopt a budget.  Before the business part of our meeting, however, we have a very special speaker: Stephen Spaulding, from Common Cause, will talk on “Voter Participation”. This is a topic of great interest to the League, and we look forward to his presentation!  

Agenda and Luncheon Menu Choices in Newsletter.  Call Fran Nelson to make reservation.
