On Saturday, a new exhibit featuring female winners of the city’s Covell and Brinley awards will open at the Hattie Weber Museum of Davis in honor of Women’s History Month. The museum is at 445 C St., in the northeast corner of Central Park. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Wednesdays.

Thanks to research by Judy Wydick, the exhibit contains information on 34 female winners of the C.A. Covell Award since 1945 and 27 female winners of the Brinley Plaque. The Covell award, named for “Cal” Covell, honors a Davis Citizen of the Year for contributions to the community in different ways over a period of years. The Brinley Plaque, named for Sam Brinley, honors a person who has made a special contribution in one area for a shorter period. Both men and women are eligible for both awards.
