In August, we celebrated 101 years of the right to vote. We laid flags at the graves of women suffragists in Elmwood Cemetery and were finally able to celebrate Women’s Equality Day and rededicate the Louise Gasser Kirtley Memorial properly on August 26.  See pictures here.

These portrayals of figures in Owensboro’s history will be performed weekends from Sept 16th through October 2nd.  Presented by the Owensboro Museum of Science and History and the Daviess County Public Library, they are not to be missed.  Tickets available for either the tent show or a wagon ride, both at Elmwood Cemetery. Check out the OMSH’s Facebook page and reserve your spot at owensborotickets.com.
