Commission for Women Annual Report

Commission for Women Annual Report

Natalie Rook, President of the Washington County Commission for Women and Commission member Joan Erdesky brought this Status Report and discussion of its association with Girls Inc. and the Boys and Girls Club before the Board.
Rook told the Board that the Commission has been active in community projects such as the Storybook Project at the County Detention Center.
Female inmates are encouraged to tape record children's' stories that are played to their children in the home.
The Commission's annual essay contest theme will be "Women in Sports". Better participation from the schools is being sought.
"The contest has a $300.00 first prize," Rook said. The report covered other projects completed over the past year and announced that the Commission is in the process of writing a book titled "Washington County Women First's".
This is the first in what is hoped to be a series of reports to the Board of County Commissioners.
