Recognition Luncheon committee enthusiastic about the May 3 Wrigley Mansion event

Guest speaker Barbara Barrett
Co-chair, Barb Ehrhard, and her committee are enthusiastic about this day. "This is truly a BIG event.  We have a fabulous and distinguished speaker -- Ambassador Barbara Barrett, who is a Historical League member, Historymaker, aviation attorney, diplomat, rancher, chairman of the Aerospace Corporation, backup space flight participant to International Space Station, first civilian woman to land an FA-18 Hornet on an aircraft carrier, member of several boards including Smithsonian, Sally Ride Science, and O'Conner Institute, and owner of the Triple Creek Ranch in Montana, which Travel+Leisure recognized as one of the best hotels in the world. We will have two sets of free tours of the Mansion, raffle prizes, and of course, our Annual Meeting and Recognition of Volunteers this past year.  Thus, we needed a large committee so that no one person felt overwhelmed with any tasks.  Plus, what a great way to get to know each other better and have fun!

This event would be the perfect time to bring family and friends to appreciate the history of the Wrigley Mansion, the novelty of Kentucky Derby hats and the wonderful and rare opportunity to enjoy one of our own Historymakers speak. We hope you can come."
