Free to Be Project

Recently,  Gail Stumpauzer, CEO of the Free to Be Project met with the Rotary Club to explain their mission to help women and girls know and appreciate their own unique talents and gifts and to realize that they are WORTHY!  Their organization is led by a  volunteer group and was founded in honor of Margeau Stumphauzer, a young woman who fought feelings of inadequacy, not because she lacked talent or beauty, but because of the messages coming at her from so many outside influences.  October 31st will be the 4th annual day of “DISCOVERING You” with a special session for girls ages 10 – 15.  More information is available at Free 2 Be Project Discovering You
