Event description

Description

Celebrate Women's History Month while earning your "Playing the Past" badge. Many DAR members were active suffragists, including Susan B. Anthony and Alice Paul. In 1913 Alice Paul organized a suffrage parade that ended right here at the DAR Headquarters! Decorate your own "Votes for Women" sash, learn about the history of this important event, and read speeches by the inspiring women that advocated for women's right to vote.

Each participant will recieve a "Playing the Past" self-guided packet with games and activities to help them earn their badge. The activities take about 1 hour to complete and the badge is included in the ticket price.

We hope you will also attend the all-day community event, "Women's History Celebration," which is open 10:00-3:00. Family and friends are welcome!
