The Historical Society is seeking outstanding Douglas County women

The Douglas County Historical Society is seeking nominations for women who have made a significant historical contribution to the quality of life in Douglas County. The women nominated, living or deceased, must live or have lived in Douglas County.

The Historical Society will celebrate National Women in History Month by honoring six selected honorees at a reception at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center in Gardnerville on March 29. All are welcome.

The theme for the 10th annual Women in History Remembering Project is “Douglas County Women: “Preserving Their Legacy for the Future.” This program preserves Douglas County history that might otherwise be overlooked or forgotten.

Nominating packets are available at the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center, 1477 U.S. Highway 395 in Gardnerville. Packets will be mailed upon request by calling the office at (775) 782-2555 or Helen Chappell at (775) 721-7979.
