Women’s Suffrage Exhibit

Burlingame Schuyler Museum Is featuring a pop up exhibit on Women’s Suffrage created by Archives and Records Administration.  The exhibit will be on display starting  Wednesday August 19 thru September 30, 2020.  Museum hours are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, 1 pm to 4 pm.

The women’s suffrage movement was a decades-long fight to win the right to vote for women in the United States. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

Burlingame Country Christmas

Plans for the 31st. annual Burlingame Country Christmas are going forward with hopes that by December 5 the pandemic will be on the way to being gone.  It is our hope that you will be a vendor again this year.  As in the past this show sells out so it is important that you get your reservation in  early.  In the event the celebration has to be canceled you will be notified and your money returned.  Hope to hear from you soon.  Country Christmas Committee.
