Thank you for the Women’s History Month series by Sue Tone. All are good and I especially enjoyed the one on Julie Jaquette, member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ. We became open and affirming to all people in 2005, part of a long and proud history of serving Prescott. The church on Gurley and Alarcon was organized in 1880 and since its beginnings has not discriminated against anyone who wants to worship in a welcoming and affirming congregation.
I am gratified to see Julie’s story as well as those of other women in the area who have taken the initiative and overcome social obstacles. It behooves us to honor them and support all the young women who have such influence over whether or not our country welcomes everyone.
