The League of Women Voters of Roseville, Maplewood and Falcon Heights is celebrating its history by issuing a booklet with interviews with several of its pioneers and vintage photos and news clippings about the group. It’s available to look over at the Roseville and Maplewood libraries and Roseville, Maplewood and Falcon Heights city halls; people can also access the booklet and hear interviews at www.romafh.org.
The local League’s motto was “Don’t Squawk if You Don’t Vote,” urging women to get out and have a voice on who represents them rather than complaining. (submitted artwork)

That’s all it took for the pioneers of today’s Roseville, Maplewood and Falcon Heights chapter of the League of Women Voters to put on their hats, gloves and walking shoes and get to work.
