The League of Women Voters of Montclair is hosting a social gathering and a discussion on voting and other civic activities on Wednesday, Aug. 18 at Fitzgerald’s 1928, located at 13 Herman St. in Glen Ridge, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Members and non-members are welcome to join the event. There will be a cash bar and a happy hour event from 4 to 7 p.m. The event will be outdoors — Fitzgerald’s has a canopy cover, so the event is rain or shine.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond. Visit to see how we're doing and make your contribution.
