From leading abolitionists and suffragists to Broadway stars and television personalities, many prominent women have been a part of New Rochelle’s long and rich history. But many local women should also be recognized as heroines, as they were instrumental in shaping their community through unprecedented acts of charity, steadfast dedication to organizations, and keeping the “home fires burning” during times of war.
For the Friday, March 16th League of Women Voters’ “Coffee and Conversation” at the New Rochelle Public Library, City Historian Barbara Davis will give an illustrated slide presentation describing a few of these remarkable women and their impact on New Rochelle. The free Women’s History Month program runs from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. Complimentary coffee and light breakfast fare will be served. For more information, call 632-8254.
