"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


"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."
