The Women of Worth continued their focus on the women and men who have contributed their time and energy in improving the lives of their families and the lives of all those living in Blackford County by compiling a second volume of life stories of local senior citizens. The project was begun in Indiana’s Bicentennial year 2016 as part of the statewide celebration. Seventeen interviews and stories were included in that first volume.

This volume adds another 21 stories. Most of the stories shared come from people born in the 1920s and ’30s. They each tell about growing up, often sharing their perspectives on life during the Great Depression and World War II.

Both volumes are available at the Foundation office for $5 each.
