Today, June 4, 2016 was our Her Legacy: Women of Fort Collins HIgh Tea Recognition Brunch. What a beautiful event it was--as was shared by guests, who attended and were apart of history today, or HerStory, today celebrating women past and present who have helped shape the city and community we live in. We are blessed by their selfless acts following their passion in years past and today, not realizing the legacy they were creating.
