Olney Library, 3500 Olney-Sandy Spring Road, will present “Grit and Gusto: Farmerettes and Suffragettes on the Homefront in WWI” at 3 p.m., highlighting how Maryland women rallied to new involvement and activism during 1917-1918. Farms suffered extreme shortages of workers as men left for war. Farm work became a patriotic crusade for women and suffragettes encouraged a new kind of worker called a farmerette. Presented by Judith Welles, author of “Cabin John: Legends and Life of an Uncommon Place.” Go to www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library/branches/olney.html.
