MEETING of the Noon Hour Brown Bag Lunch Bunch
at Gallery 140, 140 Bridge Street on hold until further notice.
BYO lunch and beverage.  We are providing tables, chairs, ideas, enthusiasm and energy!
Beginning in May (so we have some progress before tourist season) we intend to find the resources, ideas, and volunteers to jazz up the windows of a few unoccupied buildings for the summer months.
Over the next year, we would like to persuade all commercial district building owners to participate in decorating for the holidays…at least from Black Friday through New Year’s Day.
Note:  Educators who might have interested students are invited, too.
Get a few STUDENT ideas  here.
We are also looking for folks with that “decorating” gift!

GET THE WORD OUT!

Las Vegas will participate in the 2020 Centennial Celebration of Women’s Suffrage.  The state legislature voted in favor of a woman’s right to vote in  February 1920, and the 19th Amendment was added to the US Constitution on August, 26, 1920.  If you have any  information or memorabilia from those days, or from the Federated Women’s Club from 1910 – 1920 or anything else you think might be an interesting or educational addition to the story, please  email  Sonya Berg or call her at 505 425-6680
