On March 18 our League is honoring three women who personify women's history in Michigan.
The Honorable Lynne Pierce, who, after practicing law privately, moved into the public sector to serve as Municipal Judge in Grosse Pointe Woods, then as a Wayne County Circuit Court Judge.
Carol Cain, Free Press columnist and host of "Michigan Matters", is a highly respected journalist. Journalism runs in her family - her mother, Ruth Cain, was also a journalist known to many as Ruth Alden.
Emily Fijol, Executive Director of the Michigan Women's History Museum and Hall of Fame, represents all those Michigan women whose knowledge and talent have contributed so much to our lives.

The Grosse Pointe League has had co-Presidents before, but this year we are trying something brand new - a four person Presidential Team. It appears it needs four of us to fill the shoes of outgoing President Christina Schlitt, who has led us so efficiently and with such graciousness. All of us are committed to keeping our League an important part of this community and having fun doing it!
