Vivian Louise Daniel
October 1931 - November 2003
Beloved Teacher, Advocate, Feminist, Community Activist, and Photographer.
The last wish Louise expressed to her friends was that some event be established to remind women of all ages in our community of their unique history. Her concern was that younger women were not familiar with the efforts of earlier women to overcome barriers to equality.
Before her death, Louise agreed that an annual Women's History Lecture could address her concerns and achieve her last wish. Her friends raised the funds to start the luncheons.
This will be the twelfth annual luncheon that will highlight women's history in our area. The past luncheons have recognized women lawyers, public
school teachers and administrators, business leaders, child-care providers, elected officials, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) professionals, bankers, and farmers/ranchers.
