What does it look like in NH? What can we do about it?

Lunch (always a highlight) followed by a short business meeting and a presentation about NH's own Marilla Ricker--suffragist, lawyer, would-be NH governor.

Election of officers, budget, some other business, but mostly a good time with League members and friends.
