The Museum Association of East Muskingum in partnership with Ohio History Connection will host “Remarkable Women: Past, Present, and Future”, a luncheon recognition, on Saturday, March 21. The event celebrates the life of Annie Glenn who marked 100 years of age on February 17. For the past several years 3 remarkable women from our community have been honored at the annual celebration; one representing the past, one representing the present and one representing the future. Each of their stories is shared by a friend, family member or colleague.
The Woman of the Past is someone whose life and contributions are a legacy for others, exemplifying a life well lived. This year’s honoree is Margaret Castor, mother of Annie (Castor) Glenn. We are anxious to learn about her life and how her example inspired others, especially her daughter, Annie. Mrs. Castor’s story will be presented by a family acquaintance, Laura Bates.
The Woman of the Present is someone widely known and highly respected and regarded for her current exemplary contributions to the region and beyond. This year’s recipient is Gail Requardt whose contributions to the community, church, and education are unending. A long-time member on two boards of education, she has supported numerous successful initiatives. Gail’s son, Gregory Stamm, will give her presentation.
The Woman of the Future is an already successful woman whose future holds even greater promise. This year’s recipient is Susan McDonald. Susan, a widely known successful attorney in Zanesville, is also known for her extensive 4-H work with youth. Rev. M. Eleanor “Ellie” Johns-Kelley will present Mrs. McDonald.
The John Glenn High School String Sounds will perform at the luncheon which will begin at noon in the atrium of Caldwell Hall on the campus of Muskingum University. The event is open to the public but seating is limited. The cost is $25 per person. For reservations, call the Museum Office at 740-826-3305.
