Tempe is hosting a March 29 forum to honor the first women of the City Council in what will be the first time this group of women will gather to discuss their experiences.
A panel of four former councilwomen will include Dorothy Cooper Nelson, who became the first woman on the council when she was appointed in 1966. Also on the panel are Beverly Hermon, Patricia Hatton and Barbara Sherman. The event will feature information about other women leaders in Tempe, such as Sallie Davis Hayden, the first woman to plant a Bermuda grass lawn in Arizona.
The event takes place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Tempe History Museum, 809 E. Southern Ave. To purchase $15 tickets for the event, call (480) 858-2059 or go to tempeleadingladies.eventbrite.com.
