"Path-Breaking Women in History" is being held to celebrate Mother's Day, 1 p.m. May 9, Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum, 432 W. Walnut St., Allentown.

The slide-lecture will feature the stories of women whose pioneering efforts in a wide range of fields widened opportunities for women.

The stories of local women such as author Elsie Singmaster of Macungie, who became one of the best-known Pennsylvania-German writers in American history, will be featured alongside those of nationally-prominent figures such as Frances Perkins, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor, who became the first female cabinet member in United States history.

At the conclusion of the program, guests can enjoy coffee, tea and a special "treat." While enjoying tea, guests will be challenged to take a fun quiz to test their knowledge of path-breaking women.

Pre-registration and pre-payment are required to attend the event. Call Alyce Templeton, 610-435-1074, ext. 14, to register.
