This year, the CRC invites the women of Goshen to join them for a special luncheon on International Women’s Day, Friday, March 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Goshen Theater to celebrate and honor women in the Goshen community.   

Tickets for the event are $45 and include lunch catered by Bread and Chocolate. They can be purchased here.
