Come to an Un-League Meeting
Come to an Un-League Meeting
For a long time now I have known that the League of Women Voters is a very serious, dedicated organization, with very serious, dedicated women for members. The fact is that these women hardly ever (when they are together, at least) talk about anything except very serious, very dedicated subjects. LEAGUE STRUCTURE and LEAGUE IMAGE are about the only subjects ever discussed by them--except of course STATE, LOCAL, and NATIONAL government. After a while I began to wonder if these women ever PLAYED. So I decided to find out.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN FRIVOLOUS AT A LEAGUE MEETING?
I decided to hold a meeting for which there is no AGENDA, no topic for DISCUSSION, no Resource Person, no Recorder, and no Discussion. Leader. In short, an un-League-like meeting. I really wanted to find out if League of Women Voters members could cope with such an un-serious, frivolous, and non-dedicated sort of meeting. I wanted to find out if League woman could have FUN.
HELP WITH AN EKPERINTNT!
WHERE could such an un-League-like meeting be held? I had heard about the lovely, luxurious even, re-decorating which the AAUW Clubhouse had undergone. Interior decoration is an un-League subject. Therefore the AAUW Clubhouse would be a perfect setting for the experiment. It is at 1802 Keeaumoku and PARKING is provided. Parking reminds one of automobiles, which remind one of traffic, which reminds one of transportation and therefore strays perilously close to a League-like subject, but I decided to risk it anyway.
Even a frivolous meeting most have a reason for being. This meeting is in Honor of the State Convention Delegates, for one thing. We might get around to honoring a few other people, too. (I don't mean to suggest that honoring people is un-League-like. I hope no-one got that, idea. Nothing was further from my mind. But honoring them FRIVOLOUSLY?) Nevertheless a meeting which is meant to attract such a serious, dedicated group of women as the League of Women Voters must have a serious, dedicated purpose. The serious purpose of the meeting is to EAT. Seriously. (I don't want to give any secrets away, but does anyone remember the luncheon two years ago? At the Unitarian Church? That was SERIOUS EATING!) For $3.50 all-inclusive. (Including the price of the hall!)
I called on the State Board to play Hostess at this experiment. A less serious group of Leaguers would be hard to find. Perhaps impossible. But hardly a more dedicated group.
Oh, well, one can't have everything. They have agreed to find entertainment. Or to make it. Or something. But you can rest assured that ENTERTAINMENT WILL BE PROVIDED! Even if I have to do it myself!
I began to worry. Here I have hired a hall, paid a cateress, gathered together a distinguished group of entertainers, all for FUN. But these women are SERIOUS. DEDICATED. What if they don't want to EXPERIMENT? What if NOBODY COMES
Place: AAUW Clubhouse, 1802 Keeaumoku. -- Time: 7:00 p.m. -- Price: $3.50
EVERY LEAGUE MEMBER IN THE STATE OF HAWAII IS INVITED TO THE UN-LEAGUE MEETING!
