    The Daughters of the American Revolution, Bucks County Chapter, held its February meeting at the Christ Home Community Center in Warminster.

    The chapter meeting celebrated the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.

    One hundred years ago in 1920, women finally won the right to vote.   Alice Paul was a 20th century leader and strategist who helped persuade the US Congress to grant women the right to vote.

    Cynthia Betancourt, Commemorative Events Chair, introduced Patricia Troilo from Hatboro, who performed an historical presentation of Alice Paul.

    Also at the meeting, the Chapter honored Susan B. Anthony.

    Susan B Anthony was born in 1820 and made her life’s cause the right of women to vote.

    She died before the 19th Amendment was ratified, but is still regarded as a woman who had a pivotal role in the suffrage movement.

    Lauren Frank was sworn in as Recording Secretary by Christyn Olmstead, PSSDAR State Chaplain.
