Hello Neighbors!

March is National Women’s History Month. The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. I am very excited to be hosting a few events to celebrate the occasion.

On March 17 and 23, I will be hosting small meetings with various women who are leaders in the community to discuss the issues confronting women and what may be done to help overcome some of the problems.

On March 31, I will be hosting a lunch and learn with guest speaker and Michigan Woman’s Hall of Fame inductee, Laura Carter Callow. Often referred to as the ‘Susan B. Anthony of Michigan,’ Carter Callow worked for over 30 years on the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) on both the national and state levels. The event will also feature speakers from Governor Whitmer’s Michigan Women’s Coalition,

The event from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., in the Board Room of the Canton Administration Building. Light lunch will be served. The event is free but is limited to the first 40 who RSVP to
