In 1971, a visionary group of energetic, curious Yakima Valley women embarked on a mission to enrich our community by bringing nationally and internationally-recognized speakers from the literary, political, artistic, and business worlds to Yakima's historic "jewel box," the Capitol Theatre. Today, the fourteen member, all-female board furthers that legacy. Town Hall board members work throughout the year, volunteering their time and talents to investigate, procure funding for, and contract each season's speakers. In addition, this group works together to master the more technical aspects of event planning: logistics, hospitality, marketing, publishing, accounting, data base, development, and community outreach.
Yakima Town Hall is now celebrating its 46th season of "Give us an hour ... we'll bring you the world."
