The Women’s Expo is a celebration of women and women-owned businesses. Our goal is for this to be an empowering experience for everyone in attendance (that includes men). The Expo kicks off at 10 a.m. with Leslie Goddard bringing Amelia Earhart to life, followed by a presentation by three-time Alaskan Iditarod participant Karen Land at 1 p.m.  Over 20 women-owned businesses will participate from Clinton County and around Indiana. Booths will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Artwork by Christina Hollering will be on display in the Anna & Harlan Hubbard Gallery throughout the month of March.
