In addition to encouraging people to apply to our annual Edilith Eckert Memorial Scholarship/Grants, we’re planning our annual International Women’s Day celebration, which will be at the Arcata Playhouse on March 8th, 2018.  We’ll be auctioning off our current quilt, and there will be a short speech, music by the Humboldt Raging Grannies, and a singalong with Jan Bramlett.  Time tba, watch this space for details.

Every year we donate a set of children’s books, winners of the Jane Addams Book Awards, to the Humboldt County Library, and to the teacher’s resource room at the Humboldt County office of Education

Check them out at your local library!


We’re also selling tickets for a lovely quilt donated by the Open Heart Quilters.  We’ll be selling tickets at the Arcata co-op, or you can send a check to $5/ticket, payable to WILPF, to  P.O. Box 867, Arcata, CA 95518 and we’ll put tickets in for you.
