3) Event spotlight
Don't forget—tonight is the special neighborhood meeting with Mayor Scott Galvin regarding an athletic field proposal for the Whispering Hill land on the West Side. The meeting will be held at City Hall and starts at 7 p.m.
4) In case you missed it
5) Women's movement progresses
On this day in 1914, the Women's Defense Relief Corps was created in Britain. There were already some women's rights organizations in the country, but the WDRC was set up to aid the country during World War I. While some women stayed home and helped fill in for men in factories, others went as far as to serve on the front lines in France and Belgium.
