Lodi American Association of University Women Day Trippers group went to the state Capitol on Oct. 15 to participate in a living history event that was held to commemorate 100 years of women’s suffrage in California. This special event celebrated the election of Oct.10, 1911, which granted women in California the right to vote. California was the sixth state to achieve this milestone.

Museum docents and other volunteers appeared throughout the Capitol dressed in costumes depicting the era. Also, dramatic reenactments were held in various chambers and rooms in the Capitol building involving speeches and reactions from some of the women representing both sides of the issue. The California State Capitol Museum Volunteer Association and California State Parks were the sponsors.

The AAUW members who attended the event were Connie During, Linda Hammons, Barbara Peck, Ruth Wright, Linda Sattler, Suga Moriwaki, Elise Forbes, Julie Wolf and Pat Drouin. Following their visit to the Capitol, the Day Trippers had lunch in Old Sacramento and toured the California State Capitol Museum.

Day Trippers is one of many interest groups available to members of Lodi AAUW. They select a different location or activity each month. November featured a spa day, and in December, they are having a progressive “Christmas Munch” brunch at five member’s homes. More information is available at www.aauwlodi.org or on Facebook.
