Early this month I posted an idea for a contest drawing...in order to celebrate Women's History Month I invited everyone to post comments "nominating" women that they really admired.
Since every main-stream news station, website, newspaper and magazine had taken care of honoring the famous women in history...I decided to make this post about local women who we all know...women that have affected us on a personal level.
I had planned to do a drawing of the people who posted...but I only had two entries so I have decided that BOTH OF THEM WIN! They both chose to post women that they knew well and both nominations were very sweet...so, CONGRATULATIONS ladies!
Here are the women who we admire. Go to THIS POST to read all that was said about them. This post is in their honor! Happy Women's History Month...take a moment to thank those women in your life who have made it easier for you, the women who you admire, the women who you look to as role models....not just in March but every chance you get!
Helen Gillentine ....my mom, entrepreneur
Peggy Bratcher ...community volunteer
Pat Bigbee .... community volunteer
Audrey Sircey....friend, adventurer, pioneer of women's rights here in McMinnville (lol)
