Friends of 

The Friends of Borderland and DCR are co-sponsoring many events in 2023 to celebrate the centennial of the 19th amendment, which allowed women to vote.  Blanche Ames, was a suffragist and fought for rights for women.  Since we were not able to provide the centennial lecture series in 2020, we will be celebrating in 2023, in honor of Blanche Ames and the many women who fought and are fighting for equality today!  We will be highlighting historical women and their remarkable stories through historians and performers alike.  Space is limited for all of these events.  We recommend purchasing your tickets in advance (will go on sale in March 2023), if there are seats available for any of these performances, we will sell the day of in front of the Ames Mansion.
