Women's History Day Event Planned

one more week to Women's History Day...

There's just one more week until our full-day event at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Frankfort on Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For all those who are planning on coming, we hope you can register today or very soon to receive the discounted rate of $20 for the day, which includes lunch, or the student rate of $15. At the door the fee will be $25. Call Jane Purkis to register at 882-5373. There is also more information and a registration form to download at our website: http://www.bawhp.org/historyday.html

We've got a wonderful program planned for you. Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day, we'll start with Julie Guevara, Professor of Social Work from Grand Valley State University, who will talk about her experiences in El Salvador working with women there and documenting changes in their lives since 1995. Dede Alderman will present some interactive drumming and tell us about the history of women and drumming. Women from the Run Across Ethiopia group will show slides and talk about their ongoing project. Susanne Glynn will tell us of her time in Nepal and a group called ANSWER working to change the caste system and educate children. We'll feature some activist poetry, music from the Song Spinners and Mary Anne Rivers and a wonderful lunch catered by Still Grinning Kitchens. All are welcome!

The Trinity Lutheran Church is wheelchair accessible and personal hearing clarity and amplification devices will be available.

Hope to see you there!
