Former Cascades PW Moderator Marsha Landrith of Lakeview, Oregon was surprised at our April 14, 2012 Spring Gathering!  Unbeknownst to her, the Cascades PW Coordinating Team had arranged for her to receive an Honorary Life Membership in Presbyterian Women.  

Marsha’s enlightening keynote address to the women gathered in McMinnville centered around her February/March trip to New York City as a PW delegate to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women gathering.  The Commission meets yearly, this year focusing on the status of women in rural areas worldwide.  Marsha had the chance to meet many women from around the world who, like herself, are residents of rural areas.  While gathered, they addressed many issues of concern to women, ranging from housing to hunger, health to wealth, economics to slavery, and more.

Following her presentation, Marsha was presented with her PW Life Membership pin to the applause of all present.
