The WCHA thanks the
DeFuniak Springs Women's Club
for their efforts in promoting and preserving local history by honoring
"Women of Light"
These are women, both past and present, who have impacted our local community or who are from our community and have contributed significantly to the world at large.
Periodically the community is invited to celebrate the accomplishments of one of these women at a gathering. Each woman is also honored with a granite marker in the Lakeyard on Circle Drive.
Pictured above is WCHA president, Marie Hinson (left) with the most recent honoree:

Rubye H. Burton
The Lady of the Lake
Lt. Col. USAF NC
WWII Korea Vietnam
