Linda Holm and Cassandra Ventura's fifth and sixth graders will be appearing on KZFR 90.1 Wednesday evening, November 4, 6 pm on the "Real Issue" public affairs program. They will be reenacting the Senneca Falls Convention of 1848, where Elizabeth Cady Stanton and others protested the unequal treatment of women and launched the women's right to vote movement. The students have studied that history in depth and assume the roles of both supporters and opponents of the movement. Tune in: KZFR 90.1, 6 pm Wednesday.
