     Mary Zuk was a communist, but that didn't stop her from being the first woman
elected to the Hamtramck Common Council. Jean Hoxie trained international
tennis champions at Hamtramck Memorial Park.

     Both achieved amazing things in Hamtramck. And they were just two of many who helped shape the entire city. Their stories will be told a a special PowerPoint presentation Thursday, March 26 at the Hamtramck Historical Museum, 9525 Jos. Campau.

     "The Women of Hamtramck" is being held as part of Women's History Month, and will feature a spectrum of stories about the powerful women. Some made their mark in politics, others in education and still more in sports, entrainment, community service and even police service.

     There will be some surprises along the way like the incredible accomplishments of four teenage girls, and a little, sickly Polish dancer who grew up to become a TV and movie star. Their stories are inspiring and sometimes shocking considering the time the women lived in and the battles they often faced on the path to success.

     The presentation is part of the Museum's 'Hungry for History Series' and will include an optional catered dinner. Cost for the dinner is $18, reservations should be made in advance by Monday, March 13.  Cost for the program only is $3 per person.
