Monday, July 11, 2022
We met on a beautiful July day to plan, discuss, revise the activities for the coming year. Not all Board members could make it but we did have 6 of us, including our newest Board member Lea Brooks! A very productive and satisfying day! Get ready to celebrate our League's 20th Anniversary!

LWVQAC Annual Meeting
Tuesday, May 10, 2022
For the first time in two years, our League was able to hold our Annual Meeting in person at Prospect Bay Country Club, Grasonville, Maryland. With 36 members and friends attending, the meeting was led by President Pat Jamison, starting with a business meeting, then a delicious dinner served by the attentive and friendly staff at Prospect Bay Country Club. After dinner Dr. Jamison introduced our special speaker, Mr. John Lewis, Head of the Gunston School, Centreville, Maryland. Mr. Lewis' subject was 'Educating and Engaging a New Generation of Voters'.
Click here to read the article that was published in the Record Observer on May 20th, written by Luke Parker, reporter. Mr. Lewis certainly left us all with a positive feeling of optimism for the future of our country, but also with a real challenge to engage our young voters in League activities! Thank you, John Lewis, for a rousing, encouraging presentation!

LWVQAC at Kent Island Day
Saturday, May 21, 2022
A sunny, hot Saturday at the Kent Island Day annual celebration! Many fun events, tables, music, food, and organizations were represented for the many families and individuals attending. Our League had a table with information about the League of Women Voters, events including candidate forums that are scheduled, voter registration and change of address or party forms, and just interesting conversations about the League of Women Voters' role in the political process. A popular item was the pocket size copy of the U.S. Constitution that visitors can take with them! Our volunteers included Board members Pat Sommers, Liz Hammond, Gina Crook (and her lovely daughter Giana), Barbara Sharkey, and members Carolyn Moorshead and Steve Sharkey. Following are some pictures of the day:
