The four newest inductees to The Millet Pioneer Women Exhibit were honored June 7th at the Agri Plex. M.C. for the event was Eleanor Pydde. Mayor Lorenson and MLA Verlyn Olson also took turns at the podium. Country singer Lyndsey Hoff performed a musical selection for each inductee.
Torie Gerring, Phyllis Mullen, Peggy Robinson and Margaret Stuehmer were recognized for their outstanding leadership and contributions to the community. Perhaps not coincidentally, all of this year’s inductees were teachers. Comedian Ken Valgardson, a retired teacher entertained the crowd.
The Millet Museum will be hosting the Travelling Exhibit ‘Making Their Mark: The Land Surveyors Role in the Peaceful and Orderly Development of Alberta’, until September 30th. Be sure to check out the travelling display and the newest additions to the Pioneer Women at The Millet Museum.
