Sea Dogs To Honor Skowhegan’s Margaret Chase Smith

Portland Sea Dogs
Portland Sea Dogs

The Portland Sea Dogs will celebrate women’s voting rights on the Women’s Equality Day, August 26th. The team will honor Maine’s Margaret Chase Smith with a bobblehead doll. Portland’s team will recognize passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the one that gave women the right to vote starting in 1920. Get there early, only the first 1,000 fans will get a bobblehead, and they won’t be for sale.

Margaret, a Republican, was born in Skowhegan and served 32 years in Congress, first in the House of Representatives from 1940 to 1949 and later as a U.S. senator from 1949 to 1973. She also became the first woman to have her name be placed in nomination for the presidency at a major political party’s convention in 1964.

The Sea Dogs are hosting the Binghamton Rumble Ponies that day at 6 p.m. A bus to Hadlock Field has been arranged by the Skowhegan Parks and Recreation Department to include transportation and reserved seating. For more information, and reservations, call 474-6901.
