Havana Shakedown Wrap & Votes For Women Festivities


It's been another rough couple of days but I don't really want to talk about the negatives.  I'm really trying to focus on the positives but it's getting harder and harder.

A few weeks ago what I tried to do to 'get out of my funk' was to stop at a vegetarian place in Jamestown that I had not been to in a while.  Years ago I blogged about it.  The place is called The Labyrinth.  The wrap that you see here is what I had for lunch while I was in town for work.  They call it the Havana Shakedown.  It has beans, avocado, seasoned rice, sun seeds, carrots, spinach, tomato, onion, agave, lime, and hot sauce in it.  YUM!


Not too long ago I found these at ALDI.  They were pretty tasty.


Now on to some photos from the Votes For Women Festivities in our area.  In case you haven't seen my other VOTES FOR WOMEN posts...we have been doing a lot of celebrating and will continue to celebrate thru 2020...for the 100 years of Women's Right To Vote.

In this photo (above) you will see a replica of an old poster and clipped to the bottom left a photo of my niece from the rally we had back in June.  The other ladies in our local Suffrage Centennial Committee surprised me with her photo the one day!


We were able to get 3 downtown businesses to let us use their windows to promote a few upcoming events.  A few of my friends Jane and Barb did the decorating!


Here are some pics of those windows!  As you can see they are promoting the event we had on September 10th which was a portrayal of Susan B. Anthony.  More on that shortly.


I couldn't believe all of the replicas and memorabilia they were able to gather and decorate with!  So exciting!  We have lots of other events planned, too, so I will be sure to update you all!


When we did the Susan B. Anthony event on the 10th - we had a Rally prior to the show.  We had many of our committee members attend but also several from the community dress up as well!  The lady in the yellow hat is Karen and the one with the glasses in front/middle is yet another Karen.  They are both League of Women Voters Members (among other organizations).  Phyllis is pictured on the left and also in the photo below.


My friend Jane is pictured on the left with the yellow/white/purple poster.  She was one of the ladies who decorated the windows!  Phyllis is next to her...she's a local gem and involved in SO MUCH!  Annette is next to Phyllis.  All 3 of those ladies are League of Women Voters Members (as am I).  Then on the end is Carol.  Carol - along with Phyllis - are Zonta Club Members (as am I).  I adore these ladies!  They are wonderful!


Here is a snapshot of the crowd prior to the one-woman-show.  It was a wonderful evening and the portrayal was great!  The Historical Society received a grant from our local Zonta Club to pay for the actress to come to town.  

We are hoping to have an Alice Paul portrayal within the next year but we don't have the funding yet.
