Missing the quirks of my late mother leaves me shaking my head

“Are you still going to write about me when I’m gone?” my mother asked me on her 101st birthday. “What do you think?” I laughed. Never silly. My mother was charmingly quirky, especially in her later years. This was often revealed in our daily phone calls from her nursing home.

League of Women Voters of Chester County hold annual meeting

At the League of Women Voters of Chester County’s (LWVCC) rescheduled annual meeting, board members, Mary Lou Dondero, Voters Service Chair, and Meryle Rothman, outgoing Membership Chair, were recognized for their extraordinary service. Marking its 101st anniversary, the Chester County League dates back to the founding of the (national) League of Women Voters in 1920, and has been continuously active since that time. Shortly after the Dec. 4th 1919 annual convention of the Chester County Woman Suffrage Party, the members dissolved their organization, and reorganized as the Chester County League of Women Citizens, soon changing “Citizens” to “Voters.” Through the years the local LWV had some minor name changes, primarily based on geography, and divided into “units.” However, for several years now the organization has been known as the League of Women Voters of Chester County.
