Women & Girls Fund Host: The-Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife

Join the Women & Girls Fund for an evening full of laughs with Velya Jancz-Urban.  Velya lives her life by the adage, “There is no growth without change.” She is a teacher, author, former Brazilian dairy farm owner, and expert on New England’s colonial women.  

Moving into a 1770 Connecticut farmhouse ignited Velya’s obsession with the colonial era, and led to her entertainingly informative presentation:

The Women & Girls Fund, a fund of the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, works to bring together local philanthropy to address issues affecting women and girls and to provide opportunities for women and girls to reach their full potential with annual grants to local nonprofits with programs to build the economic self-sufficiency of women and girls. As we grow, so does our potential to become a meaningful community resource – one that tackles problems that are gender-based, and uniquely local.
