First, tennis legend Billie Jean King paid a visit to the Charles M. Schulz Museum in January.
Next up is figure skating star Peggy Fleming, Olympic gold-medal winner and three-time World Champion figure skater, scheduled to speak at the museum at 1 p.m. April 14.
Both appearances are connected with the museum’s current exhibit of classic “Peanuts” comic strips about women in sports.
“Leveling the Playing Field,” running through mid-August, is a salute to the 40th anniversary of Title IX, the 1972 landmark federal law providing equal opportunity for women in education and high school and college sports.
Two professional skaters with local roots, Kim Navarro and her mother, Lisa Navarro, will appear at 2 p.m. April 7 at the museum.
Kim is the 2008 and 2009 U.S. bronze medalist, 2008 Four Continents bronze medalist and appeared recently on television’s “Battle of the Blades” in Canada.
Lisa is a longtime instructor at Schulz’s Redwood Empire Ice Arena (Snoopy’s Home Ice). Both of the Navarros and Fleming have performed in shows there.
The Schulz Museum is at 2301 Hardies Lane in Santa Rosa. Information: (707) 579-4452, www.schulzmuseum.org.
