LWV OPRF February 22 Week in Preview
Tea for Three
LWV OPRF will stream the off-Broadway hit, Tea for Three on Friday, March 19 at 7:00pm. This one-woman play stars actress Elaine Bromka, who channels former first ladies Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. Tickets are $25 for our fundraiser and are available here. You can also mail your check to LWV OPRF, P.O. Box 3301, Oak Park, 60303-3301. View a video clip of the performance here.
Candidate Forums
Our third Candidate Forum started off with some technical difficulties but ultimately was an informative afternoon with the six candidates for the Oak Park-River Forest High School Board. Thanks to the Oak Park Library staff, Rashmi Swain and Bridget Optholt, again for their techno support skills. The D200 Forum recording will be posted to our website this week. Our next forum is tonight, February 22, at 7:00pm for the Oak Park Village Trustees. Go here to submit questions for the Oak Park Trustees and here to sign up for Zoom viewing. Please share this information with family and friends. You can print out a schedule to post here. If they can't watch/participate on the day of a forum, forums will all be recorded and posted on our website afterward. No excuses not to stay informed!
Second Tuesday Coming March 9
Join us on Tuesday, March 9, 9:30am, to meet with LWV Lake Michigan Area leaders and learn about the vital environmental work this unique 4-state League is doing.
