It is wonderful to see this program publicized so well. It has truly been an all-inclusive CC County endeavor. Through participation in planning it, we have creatively joined business and passion, sponsorship and community donation. Their's a part of our local history for each of us to share with family and friends. It will be inspiring to learn more, and together appreciate the camaraderie of today's CCC women. Hoping to meet you there. Pat Lopker (Moraga)
