"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 have attended the luncheons for several years. My mother, though she did not have the opportunity to attend college, was an independent woman who was very interested in the history and culture of her family and her community. It is encouraging to see that spirit continue, not only in the women of my family, but also in our Yolo County community."
