Update – Program Recap
Donna Meyer reports:
“We had a stellar program last night! I counted 92 people there, about twice as many as I expected (and 3 times as many that registered). The performance was flawless and well executed – a huge success! This is the first time we had done anything like this, which, to me, made it even more special. Many thanks to Alice, Karen H. Susan and Benny for pulling it all together. Diane Williams helped with the video, and as usual, that went very well. Our presenters did a wonderful job in representing (or being, in the case of Joan), the notable women!
I heard many great comments from people as they were leaving. Also attending was Barb Lewis, one of our county commissioners. She said she really enjoyed the program. It was a great evening, one that we should all be proud of.”
