Marching in Machias 4th of July Parade

  • Machias Memorial High School 1 Bulldog Lane Machias, ME 04654 (map)

Join the local League of Women Voters members and volunteers in marching in the Machias 4th of July Parade. We will marching wearing historical dress (late Edwardian to early 1900s or your best approximation - no judgement around the authenticity of your outfit) while carrying banners and flags based on historical ones and some more modern signs to help provide context for people who might not know much about the US Women's Suffrage Movement. We will have some "Votes for Women" sashes for people to march in if you don't have one of your own. Everyone is welcome, so bring family. The more intergenerational, the better. If you have anyone who wants to dress in men's style clothing, we'll have yellow carnations for them.
