Area women invited to WOW event

Published: Friday, Feb. 14, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

Women of the Word invites area women to a special program, “Grannie’s Treasures: Hunting for Bear,” on March 13. 

The group will meet at 7 p.m. at Waterman Presbyterian Church, 250 N. Cedar St., Waterman.

The guest speaker will be Gayle Haas (storiescomealive.org) of Aurora, who will present a dramatic monologue as Grannie Carter, sharing the importance of family, friends and community. Two years ago, Carter performed as Corrie ten Boom, the Dutch Holocaust survivor who rescued Jews during the war. As Grannie, she is a ficticious elderly woman with an infectious laugh who sprinkles her stories of timeless truths with country humor. 

This is a free event. For information, contact Sue at 815-264-3979 or sjhipple23@gmail.com.
