WCR members of the past and present celebrated their network.
The North Shore Chapter of Women’s Council of Realtors (WCR) held their 40th Anniversary Celebration at Lovell's in Lake Forest last Thursday. The organization aims to “empower women to exercise their potential as entrepreneurs and industry leaders,” according to their mission statement. Many of the presidents from the past 40 years took part in the event, including Ruth Thiel, the first chapter president in 1972 and 1973. “Forty years is a long time when you think that in 1972, gas was 55 cents a gallon, rent was $165 per month and a pair of jeans was $12,” she joked during her speech.
