Join Anne Kemper, Gretchen Rosen and Eileen Fair on March 7th
on the eve of
International Women's Day, for the next *"Wise and Strong Women
Speak"*program at The Center for Wisdom's Women. Through four decades
has woven beautiful threads of support while encountering the ups and downs
of life. Their abiding friendship has helped each of them remain steady
and focused while navigating successes and detours, sustaining them as they
ventured through life's journey.
Their relationship has included lots of listening as they have encouraged
each other to take risks and think outside the box. They have been part of
each other's lives through the raising of children, finding new career
paths, and experiencing changes in their families. They have shared
creativity, bumps, changes, loss, partnership, messiness, and successful
achievements. They have painted sunrise and sunset colors in Eileen's first
'room of her own,' have cooked lots of dinners, created quilts, crafted,
laughed and groused together. They are spiritual sisters who generally
just love being together!
Professionally, Eileen Fair has been providing mental health services in
various settings over the last 40 years in the Lewiston/Auburn communities.
Anne Kemper, a 39 year resident of Lewiston, is the Counselor Coordinator
of Lewiston Adult Education's Adult Learning Center.
Gretchen Rosen has been a Peace Corp volunteer in Chile, a teacher, a
parent educator, a court mediator, and she continues to volunteer and serve
on boards. She has lived here for 43 years.
These three creative-leaning women have come to highly value their
relationship with each other and other women. They join with the women's
center in inviting women to come reflect with them on "friendship,
creativity and imperfection." In this intimate public conversation, Eileen,
Ann and Gretchen will consider female friendships, how we hang in tight
with each other in tough times, how sometimes we must recognize the
toxicity of unhealthy competition, and how over a period of time we can all
come to appreciate the blessings of friendships.
Marguerite Stapleton will again facilitate the program planned for Friday evening
, March 7 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm
. No reservations are needed, just come and
bring a friend. Light snacks and beverages will be offered. There is no
charge, although a donation to the women's center is appreciated. For more
information call 513-3922.
The Center is located just off of Bates St., between Pine and Ash, behind
the Healy Terrace building. Parking in the lot is limited, but there is
street parking and the Park Street garage is only a block away.
