Soroptomist presents living history


Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra will present a living history presentation of six notable women in history on March 25. The program will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe Community College Theater.

In addition, displays featuring photos and biographies of the six women are available for viewing at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd., as well as the Lake Tahoe Community College Library, One College Drive.

Each woman depicted represents one of Soroptimist International’s six programs of service. In the area of economic and social development, Pearl Logan will depict the life and times of Madame C. J. Walker; representing education is Emma Hart Willard played by Patricia McBrien; the work of Dian Fossey, played by Joanne Shope, will address the environment program of service; Patti Howell will represent a woman making history in health, Dr. Susan Love; Donaldina Cameron’s efforts to end the “yellow slave trade” will be depicted by Norma Santiago as the program focuses on Human Rights/Status of Women; and representing International Goodwill and Understanding will be Audrey Hepburn, whose commitment as an ambassador to UNICEF will be highlighted by Wendy David.

Admission is $5 for adults and free for students. Tickets will be available for purchase only at the door. Proceeds from the presentation will go to the Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation for the purchase of women in history books. Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
