The month of August was observed as Women’s Suffrage Month in the Alleghany Highlands.
The observance coincided with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.
Members of the Covington Woman’s Club recently joined local government officials for the proclamation signing.
