League of Women Voters to host art raffle fundraiser

The League of Women Voters of Ridgefield will host its eighth “Get To Know Your Town” meeting and fifth annual art raffle “kick-off” celebration on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 10:30 a.m. at town hall’s lower level conference room. Dr. Mark Meachem, chair of the Ridgefield Arts Council, will be the guest speaker at the meeting and will talk about the arts in Ridgefield and the synergies between various organizations in Town.
The league’s art raffle will “unveil” artist and Ridgefield Guild of Artists member Rhonda Gentry’s painting “Yellow Roses” which she has donated to the league for its fundraiser to help support its mission, which includes voter education programs. The drawing for Gentry’s painting will be held at the league’s guest bartender event at Gallo’s Restaurant on May 14.
Ridgefield League members are invited to attend the board meeting at 9:30 a.m. before the start of the 10:30 meeting.
