Women’s Month Celebrations continued today at Government House.
Guam – The celebration women continued today over at the Governor’s House as Governor Eddie Calvo and First Lady Christine Calvo honored women pioneers in Guam History.
March is Women’s History Month and today several leading women both past and present were recognized for their hard work in making positive changes for the island. Leading women in politics, military and in non-government sectors were presented awards and plaques and Governor Calvo also signed a proclamation dedicated to the Guam Memorial Hospital Volunteers Association.
“Behind every fundraising initiative, raffle drawing, every planning meeting for our annual charity ball and every working session with our hospital liaison, there’s an army of women with our hospital wearing iconic pink vests volunteering their time to make sure our hospital has equipment it needs, to nurture our sick and most importantly, their work insures that our doctors, nurses and professionals have the tools they need to save lives,” First Lady Christine Calvo said.
This year, the pink ladies are celebrating their 50th anniversary.
