Annie Oakley: "Aim for a High Mark"

May 30, 2018 at 7:00 PM | Lavallette, NJ | Ocean County Library, Upper Shores Branch
Annie Oakley, a diminutive sharpshooter and exhibition shooter, competed in a sport and in a world dominated by men. She felt strongly that women were just as capable as men and insisted that they should strive to achieve any goal or occupation that interested them. Her motto was to “Aim for a high mark…for practice will make you perfect.” and her hope was that all women would reach the “Bulls-eye of Success.”
