In 1955, the Chester League of Women Voters, in existence scarcely a year, won a blue ribbon as first prize for their exhibit in the Public Relations Category, at the League’s national convention held in Atlantic City.

The background of the poster was a house and foundation around which were pasted clippings from The Mendham-Chester Tribune, telling of League activities, amongst other items. Chester representatives at the convention were Mrs. Booth Hubbell, Mrs, Edward Jenkins, Mrs. Bernard Sugerman,
Mrs. Robert Cleary and Mrs. Charles Todd. Source: The Mendham-Chester Tribune.
