Saturday was day two of the General Federation of Womens' Club of Wyoming annual state convention. This year it was held at Little America. As a service organization, the club is very involved in the community and does fundraising primarily through community events.
Here in Cheyenne they organize the Christmas House and also work with the Botanical Gardens, Needs, Inc., and many other organizations.
Preethi Burkholder, author of seven books including "Seventeen Women Who Shook the World," was the special guest speaker for the club this year. The book is about women who have taken leadership roles, opened doors and broken barriers. Women like Eleanor Roosevelt and Mother Theresa. Preethi not only wrote the book for others but also for herself to serve as a source of inspiration.
