Annual Program Honors Women’s Contributions to Our Community
Brooklyn- State Senator Marty Golden today invited local residents to nominate friends, coworkers and neighborhood leaders within the 22nd Senate District, whose outstanding work on behalf of our communities makes them deserving of special recognition by the State Senate as a New York “Woman of Distinction”.
The Senate will honor distinguished women from throughout the state at an Albany reception on Tuesday, May 25, 2010, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of an exhibit proclaiming their special contributions. One woman from our area will be honored as part of this statewide event.
“There are remarkable women in our midst whose lives, work or special accomplishments contribute to making our communities better, making our families stronger and serve as special examples to others,” said Senator Golden. “The Senate’s Woman of Distinction program provides a special opportunity to honor these women for their achievements and to thank them for the special pride they bring to our communities.”
Nominations are to be submitted by April 14, 2010 and must include a 250 word biography and a high resolution photo. Nomination forms are available by contacting Senator Golden’s office at (718) 238-6044 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The “Woman of Distinction” program was created as part of the Senate’s celebration of Women’s History Month. Senator Marty Golden recently hosted his own celebration and awards ceremony in conjunction with Women’s History Month where he honored local residents who have made outstanding contributions to the betterment and quality of life of our community.
