Apr. 24—ELKHART — The League of Women Voters of Elkhart County celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the organization with a tea Thursday.

Although it was delayed a year because of COVID-19, the celebration honored Elkhart resident Helen Beardsley and other Indiana women who contributed to the cause of women's suffrage. The tea featured Indiana Historical Museum panels of Indiana suffragettes, which will be on display at the Havilah Beardsley house until May 6.
