METHUEN, MA — On August 18th, Methuen Village residents celebrated the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which granted many women the right to vote. Adorned in “Votes for Women” sashes reminiscent of those worn by early Suffragettes, residents and associates of the Assisted Living and Compass Memory Support Community held a champagne toast to honor the women who fought for their right to vote.
EnrichedLIFE Director Brianna O’Brien organized the celebration and used it as an opportunity to help residents verify and update their voter registration information ahead of the upcoming election and request mail-in ballots for those interested.
“I’m so proud that we were able to celebrate such an important event at Methuen Village,” said O’Brien. “Along with recognizing the importance of voting and learning about a historic event, I was able to bring 15 mail in ballot requests to City Hall!”
Methuen Village Assisted Living & Compass Memory Support is home to a close-knit community of seniors who engage in fun and educational activities, helping them to remain independent for as long as possible. With research-based programs like Brain Healthy Cooking and EnrichedLIFE, residents at Methuen Village are met with a host of options regarding how to spend each day.
