Join us Tuesday, February 27th at 10 am for the next meeting of the Reminisce Society. This month stop in at the K.C. Hall or virtually via Zoom as we enjoy the program “Misbehaving Women of Iowa” presented by Cheryl Mullenbach!

It’s been said that well-behaved women seldom make history. Iowa has plenty of women who made history by behaving in uncommon ways, but their accomplishments have been overlooked or ignored. Author Cheryl Mullenbach has uncovered the stories of some of the state’s misbehaving women and invites you to meet these heroic, amusing, imaginative, nervy individuals. Learn about Iowa’s female riverboat captain, policewoman, inventor, Spanish-American War nurse, ambulance corps worker, and livery manager/cigar seller and others. In their day they were heralded for their work: “a woman with plenty of nerve,” “guardian of the law,” “angel of mercy,” “bright and gifted,” “hero in skirts,” “girl in the trenches,” and “abundantly able to take care of herself.” But history has forgotten them. Let’s take time to remember.

The Reminisce Society is free and open to the public. For any questions or to have your email added to the Zoom list please call us at 641-682-7563 or email Director Sonja Ferrell a
