"I thought that this year was the best so far, and I have been coming for at least ten years, or maybe longer. Everything was very well organized. The food was excellent. The speech was excellent and timely. My friends who came with me also enjoyed the event immensely. Keep doing what all of you on the committee are doing!"
Yvonne Clinton


"I thoroughly enjoy the Women's History Month luncheons. I have reflected on my own parents' commitment to recognizing the importance of our history and how we must remember it as we change our course for the better. My dad marched in the women's suffrage parades, and my mom, when she was young, started a group of diverse women interested in their cultures and histories. I hope this event continues to flourish."
