I hope you will
join me this March for a month of exciting programs celebrating Women's
History (but men will love these stories, too!).
Eden Valley is teaming
up with Cleveland's premier women's networking group, Women
Making Moves, to present OHIO
WOMEN THEN AND NOW. There will be a new presentation each week at
a different location around the Cleveland/Lorain area. Every event includes
a program and light refreshments. Come to one, come to all - either
way, you're bound to have fun and find out about some fascinating females
from the past.
