Colorful characters and a Guest Speaker.  May have drawings.

The Legendary Ladies, founded in 1992, grew from early members’ mutual love of women’s history, costumes, and performance.  Known for the first thirteen years as The Shady Ladies, the group participated in a variety of parades and festivals and developed their signature performance, “Unconventional Women of the West.”

In 2005, members voted for a change of name to The Legendary Ladies and also decided to focus more on historical performance.  As a result, most members have researched and written scripts for at least three different women from the time period of the mid-1800’s to the mid-1900’s. Our mission is to promote the history of women who made unique contributions to the West.

The Legendary Ladies' characters for this program are: Annie Oakley - Sharpshooter, Lillie Hitchcock Coit - Eccentric patroness of Firefighters, Klondike Kate - flamboyant dancer and vaudeville star who not only mined the miners, but financed them and Katherine Lee Bates - professor at Wellesley College and poet who wrote the words to " America The Beautiful" while visiting Pikes Peak in 1893. 

Check out the costumes!! 
Words to "America The Beautiful" will be shown on the screen. Singing along required!!  
Guest speaker Terry Nolan, Highlands Ranch Metro District General Manager, will provide information on the fire station situation in Highlands Ranch.
We may have a drawing/s following his presentation. Must be present to win.
