The Fortuna River Lodge was decorated in sunflowers to celebrate this year’s theme of the annual National Business Women’s luncheon, hosted by the Fortuna Kiwanis Club.
Second District Humboldt County Supervisor and board President Estelle Fennell was honored as the 2015 Fortuna Kiwanis Woman of Distinction at the annual luncheon, which took place on Oct. 21.
Fennell said she was unprepared when her name was announced.
“I am totally surprised,” she said, “so much so that I am speechless. I am extremely honored, and humbled. I have not ever been as honored as I am this day.”
