SYRACUSE — The centennial anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that granted women the right to vote is Aug. 26. To celebrate this event, an Old Fashion Ice Cream Social is set with Congresswoman Jackie Walorski greeting the crowd at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Gazebo in Lakeside Park, Syracuse.
“It’s particularly fitting that a U.S. Congresswoman can join us to highlight that not only can women vote, but they now play an active role in making our laws and policies!” said Mark Knecht, President of Chautauqua-Wawasee. “We are so pleased Congresswoman Walorski is able to join us”. The ice cream is free, provided by Joe’s Premium Ice Cream of Syracuse and will continue through 2 p.m.
The event is free to attend and open to the public. Due to the expected attendance for the Ice Cream Social, an event plan was submitted and approved by the Kosciusko County Health Department. Masks are required and social distancing is expected per the Indiana Governor’s Executive Order.
