75th Anniversary Committee Makes Plans

In 2017, LWML will celebrate 75 years of serving the Lord with gladness. A special committee was appointed and met in St. Louis in November to create and outline plans for the year.

The committee members are:
Edie Norris, chairman; past LWML Presidents Betty Duda, Ida Mall, Gloria Edwards, Virginia Von Seggern, Linda Reiser, Janice Wendorf, Kay Kreklau; Kristy Carter; Amy Gill; Carolyn Blum; Caroline Honeycutt, Archivist-Historian; Rev. Robert Mundahl, Pastoral Counselor; and LWML President Patti Ross.


A 75th Anniversary logo, designed by graphic artist Amy Gill, was unveiled during the meeting. This beautiful logo will be featured on several products during the next two years to commemorate this special milestone.

The LWML 75th Anniversary logo represents the many facets of the LWML, which includes the faces of women throughout the ages that have been placed together to reflect the Light of Christ to the world. Celebrating 75 years and going strong, we thank God, our Rock and our Salvation. 

Chairman Edie Norris said, “The committee has begun plans to mark the wonderful milestone of the LWML's 75 years of rich history. Reflecting on the work of the women who have joyfully served through the years, we will celebrate the many blessings God has provided for the LWML to share His Word around the world yesterday, today, and as He wills, into the future. We hope everyone will join the gala celebration at the 2017 LWML Convention in Salt Lake City  Albuquerque (updated March 2016)."
