President's Message  

Hope you all had wonderful holidays.

Our Holiday Luncheon was well attended by around 60 members and guests. We were treated to a truly interesting program by Paula Freund, one of the curators of the Petaluma Historical Museum’s exhibit on Women’s Right to Vote, to be held in summer 2020. She spoke of Petaluma’s strong involvement in America's suffragist movement (suffragette was a British term).  We learned that California, always a leader, passed the women's right to vote law  in 1911, before the federal law passed in 1920.

Please refer to the monthly Perspective for upcoming programs and events.  We may need volunteers with the upcoming Convention in No. California in April, so check out that section as well.

Looking forward to a very busy Spring.  Hope to see many of you at our events.
