President’s Message

In our most recent board meeting on June 16, we unanimously passed a resolution creating a path toward a more civil Oakmont. The resolution called for Oakmont to adopt the Civility Pledge adopted by the Community Association Institute (click here to see it) as our own, and to solicit Civility Ambassadors who would encourage people to sign the pledge. With this President’s Message, which will appear in both the Friday eblast sent June 19 and the Oakmont News to be delivered July 1, I am honored to begin that effort.

Genealogy Club

June 26 – 11 AM,  Alice Paul

The Oakmont Genealogy Club is continuing a weekly lecture series on famous women of the 19th Century with a particular focus on suffragettes.  The lectures are each Friday at 11 a.m.  They are recorded and posted on the website – www.oakmontgenclub.org – under “Recent Presentations.”

The lecture for June 26 will focus on Alice Paul, who was a critical member of the final coalition when the suffrage amendment passed, among other things organizing the Women’s March and writing the Equal Rights Amendment.  She lived until 1977 and is also credited with getting the word “sex” added to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that was the basis for the recent Supreme Court ruling on LGBTQ rights.
