CHICO, Calif. -  Four Chicoans will be honored as Women of Distinction Saturday by the Chico Chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).  It's one of the ways the organization will mark its 100th Anniversary.

The women will be honored for their work in education, public service, the arts and environmental advocacy at 10 a.m. Saturday, November 16th, at the Pleasant Valley Recreation Center, 2320 North Avenue in Chico.

The honorees include;

- Sarah Blackstone, who has a distinguished career as an educator in American Theatre History and she also served as the Dean of the College of Humanities and Fine Arts at CSU, Chico.  Her interest in popular entertainment forms such as circus and wild west shows and their interaction with American culture led her to write and publish extensively on the subject and to develop fascinating courses in theatre history.

- Tami Ritter, who serves on the Butte County Board of Supervisors. she is dedicated to bringing about a more egalitarian community through her leadership as past Chief Executive Officer of the Torres Shelter.  She also works with Habitat for Humanity and the Greater Chico ZHomeless Task Force ad has helped with numerous organizations that deal with substance abuse and community health.

- Pat Macias, Co-Founder, and President of the Board of the Museum of Nothern California Art (MONCA).  She raised funds to renovate Chico's historical Veterans memorial Hall and turned the structure into a vibrant museum that has become a vital asset to the community.  This museum provides the region with an opportunity to experience art for enjoyment, expression, and communication.

- Barbara Vlamis, Executive Director of AquAlliance, a Northern California coalition that actively works to protect the Sacramento Valley's regional water resources. For two decades Vlamis worked to protect vernal pools and California's critical wetlands.  She has sought to alter federal and state efforts to export groundwater from the Sacramento Valley for uses beyond the Delta.,
