Thanks to Farmers’ Market Volunteers!








LWVN thanks all the volunteers who helped at the Newton Farmers’ Markets this year…especially Sharyn Roberts, who staffed our table every market, armed with a smile and voter registration forms.

November 9th Topic Meeting: What can be done about Newton’s 588 gas leaks?

Come to the November League of Women Voter’s Topic meeting on

Gas Leaks in Newton

and learn what can be done about our 588 leaks

Thursday, November 9, 2017 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

At NewTV, 23 Needham Street (on Easy Street next to National Lumber Company)

Speakers:  Launa Zimmaro, LWVMA Environmental Specialist

                  Ellie Goldberg, Mothers Out Front

 Natural gas leaks:

  • Can cause explosions
  • Kill trees and other plants
  • Harm human health
  • Are an extraordinarily potent greenhouse gas
  • Waste a valuable fossil fuel that has been harvested through fracking

What’s more – we pay for all the gas wasted in leaks!



Join LWVMA and LWVN at Day on the Hill on Tuesday!

Make the League’s voice loud on Beacon Hill. Join us Tuesday, Oct. 24, for the annual LWVMA lobby day, Day on the Hill. Our theme this year is Moving the Needle on League Priorities, and we’ll be focusing on key legislation in voting, the environment, immigration and criminal justice reform. Keynote speakers are Rep. Patricia Haddad, speaker pro tempore in the House, and Sen. Cynthia Creem, assistant majority leader in the Senate. Registration and coffee begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Great Hall of the State House, with the program from 10 a.m. to noon. We’ll offer a brief tutorial on how to lobby before you go see your own legislators after the program. Register here for Day on the Hill. Your presence boosts the League’s clout!

LWVN members will be having lunch with members of our Beacon Hill delegation after the program–let us know if you can join us!  RSVP at so we can be sure to order enough.
