All women of Saugus and beyond are invited to First Congregational Church UCC, 300 Central St., Saugus, on Sunday, May 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., to enjoy a day set aside to celebrate who they are.

We will be served tea and a light lunch and hear the amazing voices of Rebecca Harrold, Elizabeth Manalo and Steve Rich sing to us and invite us to request our favorite songs.

Bring your mother, sister, friends, neighbors and significant others (yes, men are invited, too!) for this fun time of food and song.

Harrold will share the story of the African American woman who was the real Betty Boop and how she overcame attempts to steal her stage character and profit from her talent. A freewill offering will be taken to support our music program.
