Friday, January 10th, 2020, the local historical group, Miami County Indiana Worth Remembering placed a display on the first level of the Miami County Court House. Carol Whybrew of the local Daughter's of the American Revolution (DAR) organized the creation of the display.
Please feel free to go in, have a look, and pick up the schedule of events, and a free pin! The display focuses on the passage of the 19th Amendment 100 years ago. The 19th Amendment recognizes women's right to vote. The 100-year celebration is being celebrated all year this year, and the group has many activities planned for the community! Come celebrate with them, through the varied events, most of which are free to the public. There are many interactive, educational, and entertaining events scheduled throughout the year, culminating to a parade which will recreate the historical route that was taken in 1919 during the only suffrage (equal voting rights) parade to have occurred in Miami County! Miami County Indiana Worth Remembering can be seen on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/452242255125810/ Feel free to join the group and get lots of historical information practically daily about our wonderful community. At nearly 1,000 members, this growing group has lots to offer.
