On August 11 the Ventura County Women’s Political Council held a summer garden party which we called “Growing Our Own.”  We honored Irma J. Lopez for her dedication to mentoring women who both serve in and seek public office, particularly in local government! VCWPC was thrilled at the turnout, the great food, and the beauty of the setting at the home of Gail Weller Brown and Jerry Brown.

We acknowledge our very generous sponsors who helped make the “Growing Our Own” summer garden party a great success.  Sponsors include Connie Baer, Gail Weller Brown and Jerry Brown, Judy Bysshe, Richard Francis, Dr. Manuel Lopez, Bryan MacDonald, Carmen Ramirez, David Rodriguez and Yolanda Benitez, Celeste Weingardt, and SEIU Local 721.
