League of Women Voters’s June event set for June 18

The ABC League of Women Voters will host its June summer salon at the Andover Senior Center Monday, June 18.

A short film, “That’s a Family!” will be shown, featuring the wide variety of families in the communities.

After the film, Rev. Margo Richardson will facilitate a discussion of differences as well as commonalities of all families.

Honoring cultural diversity often excludes LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) families, according to Kathie Whelchel, membership chairperson, LWV ABC.

The discussion will focus on improving community environment so that all families can feel safe, can benefit from a top-notch education and will desire to continue living in the community, Whelchel said.

The salon begins at 6 p.m. with a social time, followed by the program at 6:30 p.m.

The Andover Senior Center is next to Andover City Hall at 1685 Crosstown Blvd. N.W.
