The month-long observance features programs and events that celebrate the role of women in our nation and in our community and will culminate with the presentation of the Fannie Bronson Postell Woman of the Year Award and the Women Educating Women Scholarship to a local student at the Women’s History Month Celebration on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 5:00pm at Amanda’s Cupcake Café (1010 S. Main Street). All events are free and open to the public.
