"One of the gifts I inherited from my mother was an interest in women who were leaders in their families, their communities and their fight for equality. I was so pleased to hear about Women’s History Month in Yolo County when I moved here, and was delighted to attend the Women’s History Month Luncheon to hear about the strong, intelligent women who were part of the legacy of Yolo County."
"This annual event, now celebrating its 25th year, 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?"

2014 WHM Theme
Each year, March is designated nationally as Women's History Month. The 2014 national theme, 'Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment,' presents the opportunity to honor Yolo County women whose lives reflect these traits. The four women who will be recognized at this year's YCWHM luncheon are: Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, mayor of Winters and principal in a management consulting firm; Paula Lorenzo Tackett, Capay Valley restaurateur and former chairperson of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation; Ann Foley Scheuring of Rumsey, long-time community volunteer and author of scholarly works on California agriculture and UC Davis history; and Nicole Smith of Woodland, children's book author and principal of Fairfield and Patwin Elementary Schools in Davis. Please join us at the luncheon to celebrate the accomplishments of these four Yolo County women of character, courage, and commitment.
