Since the 1920s our community has relied on its health services, and when did we not take our used clothing and furniture to the Carousel Shop for resale? But in the last two years Community Nurse has grown and reinvented itself right under our noses on Calendar Avenue. Find out about the changes!

September Meeting - What Makes a Good Amendment?. Please join us as four of your fellow Leaguers guide us through the thorny questions to be considered when assessing proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The presentation will prepare you to discuss the consensus questions our League will tackle in November.

Don't know much about the League's consensus process? This is a great time to learn about the thoughtful procedure the League uses to decide which positions to support, a process that sets the League apart from many other organizations.
