 MUNISING, Mich.  The public is invited to attend the eighteenth annual Alger Women of Honor Observance to be held Thursday, August 30. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is sponsoring the event. 

The program will be held at the Alger County Heritage Center located at 1496 Washington Street in Munising. A social half-hour begins at 5:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 6 p.m.   

The roll of honor recognizes Alger County women who have lead enriched lives whether through work, hobby, volunteerism or everyday living. At this year's event, three women will be honored.  

The honorees are Marcella Jo Carlson, Sharon Nelson-Curtice, and Peggy Carberry.    

The Women of Honor Observance celebrates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. The theme of this year's observance is, "Women's Education - Women's Empowerment".    

"I am very pleased that Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and the park staff have a long standing tradition of celebrating this important day in the evolution of Women's Rights," Superintendent Jim Northup said. "We look forward to joining in congratulating these special women in our community."
