League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara to Host Garden Party

Sunday's event will mark '100 Years of Women’s Suffrage in California'

The League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara will hold its annual Garden Party from 2 to 4 p.m. this Sunday, April 10, at the QAD headquarters, 211 Ortega Hill Road in Summerland.

The league will honor member Joanie Jones for her dedication in the areas of membership and volunteer coordination.

This year’s Garden Party will also celebrate “100 Years of Women’s Suffrage in California” with special guest Trudy Jarratt, first vice president of the League of Women Voters of California.

California was the sixth state to pass women’s suffrage — nine years before the 19th Amendment gave all American women the right to vote. The vote was won mostly in small rural areas, which included Santa Barbara County in those days. Women suffragists barnstormed through California rural areas in automobiles that attracted local men who rarely saw one. They would then talk about giving women the vote!

The cost to attend the Garden Party is $25. To join the celebration, call 805.962.7961 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Tickets will be held at the door, and payment may be made there.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
