Ms President US, the girls’ civic leadership program, celebrates its fifth birthday today and is recognizing the milestone with a month-long celebration.
Founder and Executive Director, Liz Osterhus, notes, “I started this organization five years ago as a bridge to help girls realize their potential and usher in future leaders for equal representation in our government. We are thrilled to be celebrating five years of educating and encouraging girls to realize their full leadership potential. We look forward to continued growth locally and nationally to reach even more girls in the years ahead.”
Ms President US will be holding a special birthday fundraiser at 850 Wood Fired Pizza and its sister restaurant Baja Taco on November 15th from 5-9 pm. 10% of all proceeds (take out and dine in at both restaurants) will benefit Ms President US. Come meet some mentors and participants, and add your name to the Camp Cody raffle.
At the State Leaders Session on November 19th, Ms President US Ridgefield participants will enjoy a Happy Birthday Ms President US cake and teen mentors will hold an Instagram Live to share the celebration.
During Ridgefield’s Holiday Stroll on Saturday, December 4th, stop by the Ms President US table in front of our favorite local bookstore – Books on the Common. You can meet our mentors, hear from Ms President US winners, and pick up a celebratory cupcake or two.
