Annual Celebration

It’s our biggest night of the year, and we want to see you there!

Thursday, May 25 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at the Penobscot Valley Country Club.

Please join us to celebrate Mabel Wadsworth Center and three decades of honoring our minds, our bodies and our power! We’re shaking things up a bit with a new location, entertainment, and more to improve this beloved annual event that reunites old friends and welcome new ones.

We are pleased to announce our three distinguished honorees to be recognized at this year’s celebration:

    • Julia Kahrl, a passionate advocate for reproductive health and founder of Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights (GRR), will receive the Mabel Sine Wadsworth Achievement Award, for inspiring and strengthening our movement across generations.
    • Davida Ammerman, a longtime persistent and effective advocate for transgender rights and social justice, will receive the Ruth L. Lockhart Feminist Activist Award, for her courageous and bold activism on behalf of transgender people and other marginalized communities.
    • Alice Bruce, past Board President and devoted supporter, will receive our Woman Power Award for her steadfast commitment to the Center and exceptional leadership during our recent executive director transition.
