Women Of Aspenland Induction 2013

Standing are the members of the family of Annie French.


As always, the ceremony for the induction of women into the Women of Aspenland Exhibit at the Wetaskiwin & District Heritage Museum was very well attended.  The biographies of Birdie Walker, Ruth (Shields) Tessari, Annie French, and Una Dowswell were read, pictures were shown, and pictures of their family members in attendance were taken.  The refreshments were a delicious accompaniment to the opportunity to visit.  

    The purpose of the Women of Aspenland Exhibit is to recognize the vital role that women play in developing communities.
