Our special guest was Catherine Osgood, one of the “hidden figures” who features in the book.
Many thanks to Hattie McKinley for hosting a potluck lunch and a viewing of the movie Hidden Figures. Sixteen attended. Hattie had everything looking pretty in her lovely home, and we enjoyed some beautiful salads, melons, and roasted chicken.
We watched the movie, Hidden Figures and enjoyed it even more, watching it with women of like minds. Our local star, Catherine Osgood, mentioned on page 210 of the book Hidden Figures, attended and shared her experiences as a math aide at NASA. We wished all the BEST to our out-going president Kathy Mallory.
