When I see the elaborate study and ingenuity displayed by women in the pursuit of trifles, I feel no doubt of their capacity for the most Herculean undertakings. Julia Ward Howe

As we start into our new year, our anniversary year, I am inspired by the words of Julia Ward Howe. Julia Ward Howe was a strong woman, probably best known for writing the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” which has become a national anthem of sorts. She was a very independent woman who was an abolitionist, fought for women’s suffrage and women’s rights, promoted peace, and prison and education reform. She spoke seven languages and was a serious scholar of philosophy. Women’s Suffrage was the cause she was most involved in and she was known for her strong and outspoken views.

Julia traveled the world as a public speaker, lecturer and dignitary promoting women’s rights. She was instrumental in creating Mother’s Day, which she envisioned as a day of solemn council, where women from all over the world could meet to discuss the means to achieve world peace. She became the first woman to be elected to The Society of Arts and Letters. She was a leading force in the study of gender politics, and many of her views are still very pertinent today.

Thank you to everyone who supported the autumn Central Street Business Association Non-Profit Shopping Days. A percentage of store sales was donated to different organizations at the shopper’s discretion and Dreams Delivered received $450! We had a great turnout and a fantastic donation! It will help get a lot of shoes and jewelry! Store owners commented that the WCE really showed up.  Thanks to Rachel Hershinow, owner of Stella Boutique and Dreams Delivered committee member, for getting Dreams Delivered involved. Mark your calendars now for the spring shopping date: Saturday, April 27. And when on Central Street, thank the businesses for participating!

Hosted by our very own Woman’s Club of Evanston

The second annual International Women’s Day celebration will take place at the WCE on March 8.  Last year started our first celebration of this event with partners YWCA and Northwestern Women’s Center.

Here is the outline of the day’s events:

7:45am Welcome and Breakfast
8:30am Guest speaker Karen DeCrow, former president of NOW
9am Panel of Experts (health care, violence against women, economic empowerment)

This year’s International Women’s Day Theme is:  The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum

This will be a wonderful event, and we are happy to be a part of the movement to support women’s initiatives.  Last year we had over 100 participants in the day’s activities, and we are expecting to top that number this year!

Look for more information on this soon. Contact Donna Frett for more information

Proceeds from next year’s event will go to the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian (http://www.mitchellmuseum.org) in Evanston. For further information, please contact Spring Benefit Co-chairs at  [email protected]. More details to come!

Thanks to your efforts and generosity Hillside Food Pantry was able to develop and implement plans for an addition to our Pantry building. As you may know, the addition will allow us to collect, sort and store donations of non-perishable food in the Pantry building, rather than across the parking lot at the church. Up until now we have had little space in the Pantry building for these donations, especially during the holidays when so many individuals and groups held food drives for us. If you'd like to see photos of the construction process, from the pouring of the foundation to taping and mudding the drywall, we invite you to visit the Hillside Food Pantry Facebook page and click on the "Second Pantry Addition 2012" album.

We're estimating that the addition will be completed by the middle of February, except for the siding, which cannot be put up until the spring. We would like to coordinate with the Woman's Club of Evanston and the Potash Corporation, who made this all possible, to have a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  I look forward to hearing from you and celebrating what we've all accomplished together to make a difference in our community!
