The Hamilton County Republican Women will be having its monthly meeting on Tuesday, at 11:30 a.m.
The Aug. 18th meeting date is significant in that it was on this date that the 19th Amendment was passed in the Tennessee Legislature in 1920 ratifying the right for women to vote. Tennessee became the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment thus granting women the right to vote nationwide. The Tennessee ratification vote became known as the “Perfect Thirty-Six” with the state giving the needed 3/4 majority for passage.
The luncheon celebration will take place at the Mountain Oak Tea Room, 9508 Church Street, Ooltewah, Tn. 37363. The guest speaker will be Jeannie Hammond.
