The League of Women Voters of the Beaufort Area is hosting a Centennial Soiree from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club on Lady’s Island to celebrate 100 years since the inception of the League.
The on-the-water, sunset soiree will be complimented by food from Debbi Covington, plus soft drinks, wine and
State Senators Margie Bright Meadows and Tom Davis will be there to discuss the Equal Rights Amendment. And speaking about the league and its remarkable beginnings in the fight for women’s suffrage will be University of South Carolina Beaufort professor Robert Landrum.
