Aug. 2020 – 19th Amendment Centennial

Kansas City Athenaeum donated $200 in Domino’s Pizza gift cards and 30 Suffragists Coloring Books to Missouri Girls Town for the girls to celebrate the 19th Amendment Centennial.  GFWC South Kansas City Area Girls Town Club partnered in this project by donating crayons, markers, and colored pencils.

MGT Recreation Director Amy Wells turned our project into a ten-day activity for the girls, adding extra emphasis on Suffragists’ efforts.  Club member Becky Garrison compiled six pages of “American Suffrage Facts” that broadened this learning experience for the girls.  Our $200 enabled them to have a pizza party at the onset of the project and another pizza party for the finale.  (Becky is also the president of GFWC South Kansas City Area Girls Town Club.)
