DOROTHY BRADEN BRUCE
The Untold Story of America's "CODE GIRLS" In World War II
February 25 - 7:30 AM  -   Virginia War Memorial

In February, Jim Bruce  and Nancy Bruce Robertson will tell us the story of their mother, Dorothy “Dot” Braden Bruce and America's "Code Girls". Dot, a Virginia native and long-time resident of Richmond, was a central character in NYT best-selling author Liza Mundy's book Code Girls The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II”.  Starting in 1942, Dot and 11,000 other young women were recruited from all across America to work in Washington, DC on a super-secret project that changed the course of the war. We will be meeting in the Virginia War Memorial and will get s sneak-peek at the $26 million expanson of the Memorial scheduled for its Grand Opening 4 days after we meet. More

Encorepreneur is a community whose goal is to help its members make their next business & personal accomplishments as successful, full of purpose and fun as they have been in the past. 
Encorepreneurs have never been content to go with the flow or to take the easiest path. They are leaders, learners, explorers, creators and builders. Some are approaching the end of their careers & others are just finishing up one "gig" and looking for another. 

Today, they are ready for an encore performance. That's why we call them "encorepreneurs."  

We hope you will join us at an upcoming breakfast.

Gary LeClair  &  Stan Maupin
Founders of Encorepreneur
