"We really enjoyed the stage program when some local women dressed up as historic Yolo County women. I remember Margy Yutzy as Margaret McDowell. I think having a connection to the historic women from all parts of the county is important."
Sharon Freitas
formerly of West Sacramento


"This annual event ... is a perfect opportunity to highlight all the wonderful ways the women of Yolo County have contributed to and shaped our county. Without them, where would we be?"

Mike McGowan
Former Yolo County Supervisor,
1st District
