Work with farm women honored
ELKHORN -- In 1997, Mary Bub formed the Wisconsin Rural Women's Initiative, a grass-roots organization that promotes well-being among Wisconsin women living on farms and in rural areas.
For her efforts, Bub was presented with the 2008 Fred Lindner Prize for Social Innovation in Wisconsin Nov. 11 at an award ceremony at Pier Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
Bub received a $5,000 prize; another $5,000 went to the WRWI.
The Fred Lindner award provides the prize to an individual over age 60 who "has demonstrated uncommon vision, determination and entrepreneurialism in addressing community, state and national problems."
