Have you RSVP'd for the June 9th Suffrage Parade yet? Wear historical garb or dress in white and march in this celebration of voting rights. If you can't talk your friends into joining you, make a note that you'll carry a timeline banner on your registration. I will personally put it in your hands.

P.S. We still need antique vehicles for the parade marchers who have experienced more of history than the rest of us.
