Celebrate Dr. Eleanor Schetlin's
Long Island NOW (National Organization For Women) members, friends, associates, and family of the late Dr. Eleanor Schetlin (1920-2007) are invited to a National Women's Day celebration in her honor and other veteran feminists, to be held on Saturday, August 25, 2007 from 2 to 4 PM at the home of East End NOW President Marilyn Fitterman, 66 Hildreth Place, East Hampton, NY.
In 1985 Dr. Schetlin won the prestigious S.U.N.Y. State-Wide Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Professional Service. Schetlin worked in higher education for 42 years, writing numerous articles for professional journals while at the same time being generous in her support of political causes, especially abortion rights for women and equal rights for minorities. Upon her retirement as Associate Dean and Director of Student Services at SUNY Stony Brook, Dr. Schetlin left behind many dear friends. The quiet joy she took in helping people is a legacy that will never be forgotten.
The celebration of her life and other veteran feminists will include refreshments, short readings and tales from Eleanor's friends, a tribute by Marilyn Fitterman, and a musical interlude of some of Eleanor's favorite songs by feminist singer Sandy Rapp.
Feel free to bring friends but PLEASE RSVP with an idea of how many you'll bring. Call at 631-329-0593 or email responses to MarilynFitterman@aol.com.
