Thoroughly Modern Addie: 1900-1910

Debra Slone, as suffragette Addie, will give us a look at the early 1900’s when the new century is bursting with energy and the future seems limitless.  Women are divided on the right to vote and a young energetic president brings changes here and abroad.  Automobiles are still a luxury and postcards, nickelodeons and cycling are all the rage.   Fashion brings more comfort and larger hats.  All are welcome to attend this program sponsored by the Zonta Club of Columbus Indiana.
