Celebrating Mrs. Annette Funn
On Tuesday, April 4, at 10am, the Board of County Commissioners will celebrate the significant contributions of Ms. Annette Funn. Whether as a League of Women Voters director, voter services chair, or president, Annette modeled the League's commitment to citizen engagement in our democracy. "In my opinion, Annette was peerless in her commitment to equal access to the ballot box. While her death last year was a painful loss, the model she created will guide our future." -John Perryman, President
The board of directors of the League of Women Voters of Calvert County encourages our members to witness the Board of County Commissioners honoring Annette.
When: April 4, 2017 - 10:00 a.m.

Join one of the League Observer Teams – we need volunteers!
The League observer teams provide a regular public presence at important County meetings as well as provide information to the League regarding government transparency, opportunity for public participation in shaping policy and new developments in areas important to the League.
Team members attend the public meetings. (The Board of County Commissioners meets on Tuesday mornings, the Board of Education meets every other Thursday with some evening meetings, and the Planning Commission meets the second Wednesday of the month in the evenings.) Members file a short report, and describe their impressions to fellow team members and to the League Board.
No experience necessary! We will train you!
