Barbara Wheeler Sponsors Event "100 Years of Women in Government" Friday


Received this email from Barb Wheeler today!  It's on my calendar, hope to see you there.


"100 Years of Women in Government

I would like to extend an invitation for everyone to attend an upcoming art show at Crystal Lake’s historic Dole Mansion scheduled for Friday, November 4 from 5:00-8:00 PM. The theme of this exhibit is “100 Years of Women in Government,” and those who attend will be able to view a large collection of featured art which focuses on the emergence of strong women in government roles. People will also have an opportunity to mingle with artists and purchase some of the original pieces of work. A suggested $5 donation will be collected at the door, and those proceeds will support the historic preservation of the Dole Mansion and Lakeside Legacy programs. I hope to see a large crowd at this worthwhile event!

More information about this event is available at www.lakesideartspark.org/100-years-women-government/

Please also visit the Facebook event for the art show here.
I look forward to seeing you at the event on Friday!
