Women's Hall of Fame Induction May 1, 2019

Women's Hall of Fame was an inspirational event, guided by Historical League members Zona Lorig and Norma Jean Coulter who are on the board. 
Many other League members volunteered with check in, set up, table decorations, greetings, Tastes & Treasures book sales. We have wonderful workers in our organization. 
Women's Hall of Fame quilts show each honoree.  
The Living Legacy honorees are amazing women: Shelley Cohn, Sharon Harper, Cindy Hensley McCain, The Honorable Barbara Rodriquez Mundell. The Legacy honorees had incredible stories: Emma Lee French (1836-1897), Kate Thompson Cory (1861-1958), Guadalupe Huerta (1920-2000), Rose Lyons McKay (1881-1934).
It was wonderful having the Cactus Pine Girl Scouts be the honor guards as well as Emcee Mary Jo West doing a great job.
