The Douglas County Historical Society’s (DCHS) will be hosting their sixth Annual Women Defining History Luncheon and Runway Show. Dazzling and Daring: Fashions of the 1920s and 30s is the theme for this year featuring vintage fashions from “Yesterday’s Lady,” a Susan McLain vintage clothing museum and salon. The DCHS will also be presenting their annual “Women Defining History” award to Carol Gendler. This award honors a woman who inspires and challenges others and is a true model in strengthening the community by demonstrating courage, tenacity and creativity through philanthropic outreach. Another highlight of the annual event is the chance to purchase vintage jewelry separately or during the silent auction. A Patron Champagne Reception and jewelry preview will kick off the event at 11:30 a.m., doors open at noon and the luncheon, presentation and fashion show will begin at 12:30 p.m. Jump back in time with the DCHS and honor how women define history, then and now.
