Annual Celebration


Although the pandemic is still preventing us from holding our annual luncheon (hopefully we can resume in 2023), we are hosting a day of celebration honoring women who have promoted hope and healing. 

Our 2022 theme, Providing Healing, Promoting Hope, honors women caregivers, frontline workers and women of all cultures who have provided both healing and hope throughout history and into our future. We hope that you will join us to hear fabulous presentations and commentary by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation; Mel Russell, historian & former Yolo County Archives Coordinator; Julia Levine, City of Davis Poet Laureate; Woodland Community College; and Dr. Aimee Sisson, Yolo County Health Officer.

Please join us for this FREE open house event on the Gibson House grounds, Saturday, March 26th from 10am to 2pm.

Women's History

Since 1987, the United States has formally recognized March as National Women's History Month. During the month of March, we give a little extra attention to all of the amazing accomplishments of strong, determined women. Every woman has a story to tell and gifts to share with the world. So get ready, because this month is about honoring magnificent women, both past and present, and we are ready to celebrate it to the fullest.
