Two years ago, the League of Women Voters of Orange County, Florida, gathered at Cypress Grove Park to plant The Voter Tree, honoring the importance of voting rights won in hard-fought battles over many years.
This year, the Orange County League invites the public to return with them to The Voter Tree on Sunday, October 24, for a fun afternoon with a serious purpose — to spread the word that “Your Voice + Your Vote = Your Power.”
The fun gets under way at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 24, at the LWVOC’s Voter Tree in Cypress Grove Park, 290 Holden, Orlando. A short program will take place at 2 p.m., and all activities will conclude by 4 p.m.
The event will feature music from the Girl Scouts Citrus Choir, as well as giveaways for the kids, refreshments for purchase from select food trucks, and free take-home trees from area nurseries. Costumed patriotic characters – Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, and Uncle Sam – will say hello and be available for photos.
It’s a great opportunity to greet new LWVOC members in person and to meet and talk with committee chairs, too, about the exciting work ahead of us.
Presenting partners include the Orange County League’s Voter Services and History committees, Orange County’s Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles, District 3 Commissioner Mayra Uribe, and Orange County Parks and Recreation.
So bring your family, your picnic lunch and blanket, and your masks, and get ready to celebrate our precious right to vote. There’s no admission charge, but please register at LWVOC.org
