The stories of women are often overlooked in history.
The Cumberland Museum and Archives presents Herstory, a living library featuring women who brought their commitment to their community, their work, and their political life.
Leslie Baird has spent her whole life in Cumberland. For many years a community volunteer for the Victoria Day celebrations, she also helped organize the Union (UFCW) in her workplace, was first elected onto Village council in 1990 and is Cumberland’s first woman mayor.
Hear Baird’s story, along with other significant women, on Oct. 25 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the museum in celebration of Women’s History Month. Admission is by donation.
