Silver and Sensational – New Podcast launched by  Lois Mills
One of The Ebell’s own, Lois Mills, has launched a new podcast called Silver and Sensational. Lois and her co-host, Tom Burke, who bookend the Boomer generation, explore subjects relating to and affecting all seniors, or as they refer to themselves, “Silvers.” Through humor, intrigue and their own life experiences, these two friends navigate how to live life to the full as a “Silver” and examine such topics as living in the present, dealing with loss or change, and how to decipher emojis!  Listen to their latest podcast on YouTube here!

On March 31 Congressman Adam Schiff announced the names of 16 remarkable women from California’s 30th district who are being honored as the 2023 Women of the Year.  These women have made significant contributions to their communities through civic engagement, community service, and leadership in their respective fields.

Among them are three Ebell members: Patricia Lombard, Delores Shine Kerr and Carolyn Ramsay.

Said Congressman Schiff: “I want to congratulate the remarkable women from California’s 30th congressional district we are honoring as the 2023 Women of the Year. The sixteen honorees are an inspiration to their communities for their passion and dedication to service. As artists, engineers, entertainers, surgeons, bakers, and beyond, these women are not just leaders in their fields of work but in their communities, making our home a better place for all.”
Congratulations from all of us at The Ebell!
