The Nevada Women's History Project Celebrated Chinese New Year!
NWHP members celebrated Chinese New Year on Saturday February 1st at 2 Guys Chinese Restaurant in Reno, Nv. In addition to providing a great meal to participants, Denise Xiong, husband David Lee, owners of the restaurant, and their daughter Sally Lee, gave members and guests an interesting history of Chinese culture in China during and after the period of Chairman Mao. They described their journey to the United States and to a new life as Chinese Americans in the U.S. and more specifically Reno. Chinese artist, Caroline Young, who was born and educated in Hawaii, introduced the audience to her beautiful artwork which often features mythical Chinese folklore. She paints on silk and foil and her paintings truly are breathtaking. Patti Bernard then gave a brief history of the Chinese in Nevada and provided participants with a link to the National Women's History Museum (www.nwhm.org/online-exhibits) which is currently featuring on online exhibit of "Chinese American Women - A History of Resilience and Resistance. The program was outstanding and enjoyed by all.
Women's Suffrage Theme for 2014
- Could It Be Yours?
The South Lake Tahoe Soroptimist Club has
chosen Women's Suffrage as their theme for the

In September, 2013, three members of
NWHP, Kathy Noneman, Barbara Finley and
Cyndy Houck presented a skit about the struggle
in Nevada and California.
Their performances were well received and
resulted in a much appreciated contribution to
NWHP. If you belong to an organization or group
that would like to have NWHP present a suffrage
program this year, please contact Kathleen
Noneman to arrange it. Part of our strategic plan
is community outreach to encourage everyone to
vote in 2014 and you can help us.
