Alice Scott Abbott organized the first Women’s Christian Temperance Union in Flagler County as well as the first Loyal Temperance Legion.
She also gave the first lecture ever given in Florida on Votes For Women at the State Convention held in St. Augustine, November 1893. Sadly Alice died 12 days before the historic election of November 2, 1920. But her legacy lives on. See her induction day below.
This year, the induction ceremony for the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame will be a virtual event through Facebook, on January 28, 2021 – 5:30pm to 7:00pm.
The Florida Commission on the Status of Women have set up the event through Facebook. This is the link for Facebook:
As you know, we were successful in adding Alice Scott Abbott and she will be inducted; however, there are two equally deserving women who will be inducted. Alma Lee Loy, from Indian River County, and Thelma Waters, from Martin County, will join Alice. A brief summary for each woman was released by Governor Ron DeSantis, last November:
