🎉WHAT A NIGHT! We had so much fun dancing with you in celebration of 100 years of woman’s suffrage – thank you for joining us and helping to make Women Rock the Vote! such a success!
🎶 Can you believe the bands? They. Were. Awesome. We are so lucky the stage was graced by School of Rock New Canaan, Rock Paper Soul, and BAD DOG BUDDY. Be sure to catch them again, soon – these musicians are local treasures!
💃🏻 Last night would not have been possible without you – our members, guests, and elected and appointed officials – who braved the cold to come out and boogie. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
💛 We’d also like to acknowledge the hard work of our volunteers as well as the enormous support from Carriage Barn Arts Center, Newcanaanite.com, HTG Investment Advisors Inc., New Canaan Police Department, Walter Stewart’s Market and Stewarts Spirits, and last but hardly least the amazing Taco Tequila Taqueria 🚛 for the delicious food and drinks! You can find New Canaan family owned Taco Tequila just around the corner in Norwalk on Main Street.
📺 Stay tuned for more exciting 100 year programming – and please consider joining us on the League if you haven’t yet! All genders are welcome – and junior memberships are available here.
🗳 Finally, suffrage is a most simple but most special American right. Please, do not forget to vote in EVERY election. There *is* a primary on the 28th of April in Connecticut!

If you want to vote in the Democratic primary on April 28th, you must be a registered Democrat. (There will not be a Republican primary; generally, the incumbent’s party does not hold a primary.) If you are affiliated with another party (i.e. Republican, Independent, Green) and want to vote in the primary, you must change your affiliation by January 28th, though the Registrars recommend doing so before the 21st. If you are an unaffiliated voter, you may register as a Democrat at least 48 hours before the primary. You may change your registration online.
