"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."
"I thoroughly enjoy the Women's History Month luncheons. I have reflected on my own parents' commitment to recognizing the impportance of our history and how we must remember it as we change our course for the better. My dad marched in the women's suffrage parades, and my mom, when she was young, started a group of diverse women interested in their cultures and histories. I hope this event continues to flourish."
