Rebecca A. Shelton presented her program "Founding Mothers" to about 25 to 30 people. We learned some interesting facts about the role of women in America's independence from England. With humor and interesting stories, Rebecca's talk was enjoyed by all. At the end of the program, newly elected & installed President Don Counts presented Mrs. Shelton a Certificate of Appreciation for being our guest speaker.
