CELEBRATING MOTHER JOSEPH'S LEGACY
On Thursday, March 1, the Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) will be hosting their next First Thursday Speaker Series event. Their focus is on Women's History Month and will be celebrating the life and work of Mother Joseph, a Vancouver icon, with a panel discussion on Mother Joseph. Focusing on how Mother Joseph built and shaped SW Washington, four panelists will discuss the impact of the physical manifestations of her life and legacy that we still enjoy today.
Panelists will include:
* * Richard Burrows, Director of Community Outreach & Programs at The Historic Trust -- Mother Joseph and the Providence Academy

* * Pat Jollota, Local Historian and Author -- Mother Joseph's Life
The museum will also have special items on display for this night only that pertain to Mother Joseph and her work. CCHM is honored to be able to share her story with our community and create a moment for conversation and remembrance.
