International Women’s Day

Tuesday, March 8th, 6:00 P.M.  (EST) at the YES Cinema in Columbus, Indiana

You are invited to a grand celebration on March 8, 2011, the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day.

The event is co-sponsored by The Granny Connection and Zonta International, two organizations helping women worldwide.  The evening will begin at 6 pm with a brief lighted walk of solidarity beginning and ending at YES Cinema. At 6:45 P.M. participants will enjoy a delicious international box supper by Pieper’s Catering while being entertained by an improvisational vocal and musical group from Indianapolis – Thin Air.  We will acknowledge our legacies in special ways.  The current and previous Women of the Year will be introduced and honored.  The highlight of the evening will be  keynote speaker, the Honorable Viola Taliaferro, first African American female judge in Southern Indiana.  Judge Taliaferro holds numerous state and national awards for her work in law and especially with families and juvenile justice.  She presents her message with power and poignancy.

Tickets for the program are $10 in advance ($12 the night of the event) and may be purchased at the following sites: Claudia’s Flora Bunda, Viewpoint Books, Lockett’s Ladies Shop, Natural Choices, and Flowers by Lois.
