In a special celebration on Sunday, September 18, the Santa Barbara WILPF group honored three longtime members for their many years of dedication to WILPF. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider presented the awards from WILPF’s national office to Dorothy Holland (96), Deborah Winant (97), and Judith Evered (89). The event, which had an attendance of 75, also featured the Baile de California and dancers from the Santa Barbara Festival Ballet in a performance of three of Isadora Duncan’s dances. Sojourner Kincaid Rolle, current Poet Laureate of Santa Barbara, was the MC.
The occasion was also written up in the Santa Barbara Independent.
