July 2019 News and Events
- March with GGRWHC in the Hollyhock Lane Parade -

The tradition continues! Join us on July 4th! Our parading mixes fun with business. As we honor the political efforts of Grand Rapids women a century ago, we use their parade model to advertise the mission of the GGRWHC today.

Use our signs, pennants and sashes, but wear something white and a hat if you can! Bring your kids! Strollers, wagons, and wheelchairs welcome!

8am: Meet us at the NE corner of Calvin and Alexander

8:30am: Parade begins, and if you would like to stay, ceremonies follow immediately in "Hollyhock Lane," the alleyway between Giddings and Calvin. Meet the neighborhood's Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam!

While not many of the registration cards have been recovered, the 23,000 from Grand Rapids were preserved at the Library and are now fully digitized. Search for your female ancestors here , and let us know if you have if you have a family story to share!
