2018 SPRING BANQUET
The 2018 May Banquet and Annual Meeting featured affiliate member, Susan Stuart as speaker. Professor Emerita of Law, Valparaiso University, Susan brought us up to date on the status and issues of Title IX which mandates equal opportunities for women in federally supported programs and activities.
One of this year’s two scholarship winners was present and introduced. And, two “Woman-Of-The-Year” members were recognized: Ruth Harbrecht (pictured) and Linda Cronk.
2018-19 officers were elected and installed. The event was also a celebration of the successful completion of our affiliate’s participation in the Porter County Community Foundation’s Match Program. PCCF will give our endowment fund almost $60,000 to match the amount we raised. This promises to increase substantially the yearly earnings we may devote to educational projects and scholarships. A very happy event!
