LWV-AA Opening Meeting
Wednesday, September 7, 6:45 p.m., Acton Memorial Library
League members are invited to join us at our Opening Meeting on Wednesday, September 7th at the Acton Memorial Library to hear Peter Ashton, Acton’s recently elected Town Moderator, share his vision of how Open Town Meeting can be made more effective and attract greater participation in an increasingly digital age. As a strong advocate for civic engagement and participation at all levels of government, the League recognizes the Open Town Meeting as providing the truest form of citizen participation.
Join us at 6:45 p.m. for refreshments and announcements, followed at 7:30 by Peter’s presentation. Public is welcome and League members are encouraged to bring friends and neighbors.
