"Where flowers bloom, so does hope." ~ a favorite saying of Lady Bird Johnson "The bushes sort of eclipse it being a 'spot.' It looks like it's on its way to become 'the woods.'" ~ Wilton LWV President Amy Harris on the WLWV Adopt-A-Spot, June 2014. They Came, They Saw, They Spruced! Saturday, June 21 -- River Road, Wilton.

June 6, 2014 Greetings. Thank you for being a member of the Wilton League of Women Voters or even thinking about becoming a member of LWV. Our League has been such a valuable and esteemed group in Wilton and I am humbled to be a part of such smart, thoughtful, savvy women and men for these last seventeen or so years. I used to joke that we were the non-4H Club as we didn't discuss our husbands, or help or homes or heirs. A good friend piped up, "or hair!" So, as well as being brilliant, kind and sagacious, our Board is fun and funny. The issues and public policies and the current events which do effect our lives, homes, families and community are most definitely discussed. At Board meetings and at many of our programs such as Annual Meetings, Reel Mondays, Community Conversations, candidate debates and forums and Study Groups we have an opportunity to share and learn many things. I spent many years in our League's Book Club and enjoyed it immensely - discussions were lively and I learned geography and cultural differences and history and the friendships of women (I'm thinking of the first one I attended which was Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood) . Our study groups have looked at School Start Time, Gaming in Connecticut, Public and Private Partnerships to name but a few topics. I have learned about consensus and non-partisanship and parliamentary procedure. One of the best things the League has taught me is if I have a question, ask it! The question I'm asking today is what can we do to get you involved? Thank you for all you've done and contributed in making democracy work! Amy L. Harris
