July 21, 2020 – Signal Hill Chapter Members, NSDAR, are demonstrating a commitment to service to the Barrington area community by launching a new season of serving in the face of a pandemic. With safety in mind, members are making history by using technology to hold monthly board meetings, conduct chapter meetings, and raise funds that will benefit local non-profit organizations.
“We are moving ahead with our chapter’s plans for 2020-2021, working hard, applying new technology, and being creative in the process. This demonstrates that our members are resilient, dedicated to serving, and have a purpose,” states chapter Regent, Joyce Wright. “Both our State of Illinois and National NSDAR conferences are being conducted as virtual events this year. As a result, we are discovering that even more of our members have an opportunity to participate in these events than ever before.”
In addition, the Signal Hill Chapter is continuing its planned educational programs. The chapter is partnering with the League of Women Voters – Palatine Area to present a virtual event called, “100 Years of Women’s Suffrage,” taking place on Sunday, August 9, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The content is appropriate for all age groups.
Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., historian and popular presenter, will bring a creative and informative approach to the women’s struggle to obtain their right to vote. Registration is free through the Barrington Area Library’s events calendar at balibrary.org.
