 “Friday Night Live” – Recap

Amy Barritt, Etta Rajkovich, Jane Purkis, and Mary Morgan staffed the WHPNM booth at the August 12th “Friday Night Live” event, raising awareness of our organization. “Dress up” items, including vintage hats and gloves, were tried on by various passers-by.  Click here to view photo’s from this event.  As you can see, it was fun for the whole family!   Coloring book pages of famous ladies and WHPNM pamphlets were handed out and a poster highlighting quotes from some of our  notable women’s oral histories was on view. The evening was a success – great job!
