Attention All Members, New and Old

Our Nevada Women’s History Project is planning new projects in order to gain recognition in the community and to provide information about Nevada women to schools, students, researchers and people who are just inquisitive about the accomplishments of women, past and present, in Nevada.

We have members who have been diligent in helping our organization out for many years but we really would like to see some of the newer members join us. Carolyn Runnells took on the organization of the Nevada Day Parade this year and it was a tremendous success. Christianne Hamel has attended board meetings since the June 2013 Pink Tea and has accepted appointment to serve as our new Corresponding Secretary. They both bring new vision to the NWHP. Sally Wilkins, a member who has taken a few years from active membership, has offered to help on the Program Committee. She was welcomed with open arms.

We are always looking for individuals to help with research, to write biographies, to write lesson plans for use in Nevada’s schools, to work on grant writing, write newsletter articles, perform as Chautauquans, help with program planning and coordination, help with publicity and marketing and other interesting and fun activities.

We need a new Treasurer – please see the description.

If you’d like to attend Board Meetings to learn a bit more before you “step up to the bat,” please remember they are held on the 2nd Monday of every month at our office which is located at 770 Smithridge Dr., Ste. 300, Reno, NV 89502 – off of S. McCarran Blvd.

Please call Chair Mona Reno at 775‐847‐0577 or email mreno@gbis.com or NWHP@pyramid.net and leave your name and your area of interest.

You’ll receive a call – promise!
