The historic 20th Annual Women Who Make A Difference Luncheon was complete with emeralds, white flowers, music, dignitaries, raffles and plenty of joy to go around. Guest speaker and luncheon founder, Gail Matthews, spoke about how we can all “bloom where we are planted,” give of ourselves, grow strong and make a difference. She shared memories of the luncheon and stories of our beautiful region and the many people who make it so special.
