Join us as Laura Keyes arrives as Elizabeth Cady Stanton on Saturday, March 26th at 10:00AM. Elizabeth Cady Stanton fought for equal rights for women for over fifty years, and upon her death in 1902, she left behind a legacy of her crusade for female equality and myriad writings that would inspire feminists for over a century to come. Hear from Mrs. Stanton in 1866, when the Civil War was over but the battle for Women’s Suffrage was just beginning.

Unexpired food and pantry items will be accepted during February to benefit the New Life Community Center in Forreston.
