The annual occasion recognizes local women who have made an important, positive and continual impact on our community in their fields. A large crowd attended the ceremony and all were entertained by the female singing group The Distraction. This year's event was dedicated to Ann Winters, who recently passed away. Ann was one of the Founders of and the historian for Women Making History in Kingman. A quilt created by Karin Goudy was raffled off, with all proceeds going towards the WMH scholarship fund.
