A community-based art project that seeks to connect communities through pulling up a chair and sharing stories of positivity about Strong Women of Toledo.

Story from Rebecca Locke Gagnon

As the curtain closes on a lifetime of achievements, we take a moment to reflect on a woman who brought a big city mindset to a small town life. This poster depicts the life of a lady whose passions ranged from a bow tie entrepreneur to a musical composer. Rosemary was a woman who danced her way to success, not letting anything get in the way of following her dreams. If Broadway would have it, her life story could be sung through a musical tribute, A Bow Tie Affair, that would display her determination and love of life and music.
