    The League of Women Voters and Wabash College Library recently kicked off the 2016 Green Film Series with “Just Eat It,” a film made by two young Canadians highlighting the situation of global food waste. The filmmaker, Grant Baldwin, had read about the well documented fact that North Americans and Europeans waste 40% of all food that is raised in their countries. In other parts of the world, the percentage is still sobering at 30%.

    Paul Miller, Crawfordsville Fire Department Division Chief of Emergency Medical Services, is one of those rare individuals who can turn ideas into reality.  He is spearheading a new initiative between the CFD and Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health-Crawfordsville (FSEH-C) hospital which will make us all healthier, safer and help our pocketbooks too.  It’s a non-traditional 911approach to delivering healthcare to our community.

    Elections in 2016 are exceedingly important.  The Primary Election will be held May 3, but voters can choose to vote absentee or early in satellite locations.  Voters need to be informed about the candidates before they vote, and all Montgomery County citizens are encouraged to come to a Montgomery County Candidates’ Forum which will be held Tuesday, March 29 at the 4-H Building.

    “Providing Leadership in our Community” was the topic presented by Christina Sharp, a recent graduate of the Montgomery County Leadership Academy, at Monday’s Lunch with the League.   What is a leader?  Leadership comes in all shapes and sizes and in different formats and sometimes the best way to understand leadership is to first understand what it means.

    March is National Women’s History Month.  International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, but it wasn’t until 1981 that Congress established National Women’s history week to be commemorated the second week of March.  In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the President has issued a proclamation.

    Zerelda Wallace along with two other Indiana pioneer suffrage leaders—May Wright Sewell and Helen Gougar—will be honored Monday by a concurrent resolution in the Indiana General Assembly.  The three were instrumental in gaining women the right to vote.  The timing is significant on the eve of March—Women’s History Month—as part of Indiana’s Bicentennial Celebration and 96th Anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters.
