To the Editor:
Thank you to Carter County Mayor Patty Woodby, the county commissioners and other government officials of Carter County for attending the dedication of the plaque recognizing the 101st anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.
Thank you, also, to Tracey Harris and the Carter Country Election Commission, for hosting this meeting. Thank you, Joe Penza, Elizabethton/Carter County Library, for the wonderful and informative posters that chronicled the history of this movement.
Thank you Helen Wilson for bringing our special guest, Eve Olive, to speak at this dedication. Thank you to the Carter Country Democratic Women for organizing this event, and for all who attended. It was wonderful, coming together to recognize the women AND men who brought to pass one of the most important Constitutional amendments in American history.
Thank you to all who attended as well as the news media who covered the event.
