"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."
"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!"
