Women's History Month at the College of Lake County will begin with a song and end with comic books.
In between will be packaged a series of lectures and events highlighting issues of concern and interest to women. Most of the events are free and all are open to the public.
The Women's History Month programs have grown each year since the CLC chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges began sponsoring them in 1992, Julie Shroka, coordinator of this year's event, said.
"We thought Women in History Month was a good time to showcase women's issues and to have programs for and about women," Shroka said.
Although operating on a shoestring budget, the group is trying to expand to offering at least one women-oriented program per month. Most are what Shroka calls "brown bag" events - lunch hour programs.
"Hersong: Quad Cities Women's Chorus" will kick off the celebration with a performance from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday on the Mainstage Theatre of CLC's new Performing Arts Building. Tickets are $6 for CLC students, staff and alumni, and $8 for the general public. There will be a reception following the performance.
The brown bag programs will begin at noon March 4 with Dr. Christine Skorberg of Westmoreland OB/Gyn Associates, with "A Discussion of Breast Cancer," in Room C0003. This is co-sponsored by the CLC Health Center. …
