    Hi there. It’s us again. Your local League of Women Voters - Northfield & Cannon Falls.

    It’s summer time and the livin’ is easy. That means time to socialize. With us. Your local League. Did we say local?

    We want you, members and non-members.

    No worries. No cares. Just a nice night on a deck. Near water.

    Please come to our happy hour at the Tavern Lounge Deck on August 31, anytime between 5 and 7 pm. The upstairs place. Not the downstairs place.

    This will be fun. We promise. No work. No speeches. No duties. No buttons. No signs. Not this time. That is for fall. It is still summer. And the livin’ is easy.

    Who are we? We are the League of Women Voters of Northfield & Cannon Falls. We are your local League. We do good things. Like educate voters. Organize candidate forums. Get great grants. Give out cool buttons. Take a stand on issues. Invite smart speakers to town. All good stuff.

    Want to read our full mission statement? Summarized in short form – educate yourself; play nice; advocate; be informed when you vote.

    We are you, your neighbors, your friends, your mom, your dad, your son, your daughter. We come in all ages and all shapes and sizes. We are men, too. We have a dude on our board. This is not your grandmother’s league. This is your local league. Fighting for truth, justice and the American way.

    Come on out. Deck. View. Smart people. Happy hour. August 31.

    Yes, there is something you can do about climate change!  Five of our Northfield neighbors (including several LWV members) are joining many others from Citizens' Climate Lobby next week in Washington.  They will tell our congressional representatives  that climate change is a threat to all of us, and they will ask them to put a small price on carbon.  Members of CCL  will be meeting with EVERY member of Congress.  

    Our representatives in Washington think that we don't really care about climate change. Would you like to let them know that we want action?  You can do it!
