Award Presentation.2019 LWVC  Tea.jpg

Nina Rossomando, president of the League of Women Voters South County, left, presents an award to Literacy Volunteers of Washington County Executive Director Mary Carol Kendzia during the fourth annual league tea held in April. Kendzia accepted the award on behalf of the organization and its 65 volunteers. Rossomando cited the literacy volunteers for their outstanding contributions to improving literacy and citizenship education in South County since 1982.

This year’s tea was a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the league in the state of Rhode Island. On League Day at the State House on April 10, the league was recognized by the Rhode Island General Assembly with a Governor’s Proclamation praising the league for its "decades of work providing voter information through candidate forums and voter registration drives, and for championing voting rights for all citizens, open and transparent government, and many other issues."
