This is an exciting time in women's history! 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. Because of the brave women that came before us, women living in this great nation have the opportunity to vote and to have our voices heard!
Each spring, I look forward to recognizing outstanding women who live or work in the 54th Senate District. During my Annual Women of Distinction ceremony, local women who have made a difference in their community are recognized for their tremendous contributions.
I encourage everyone who knows of a woman worthy of recognition to submit a nomination form. Every woman nominated will be honored during a special ceremony on April 24th. Later in the year, one nominee will be invited to represent our Senate district at the NYS Senate Women of Distinction event at the State Capitol.
Bringing together strong women and recognizing their achievements is a source of great pride and inspiration. I hope you will consider nominating a special woman!
Enclosed you will find a nomination form for this event which can be mailed to or dropped off at my District Office at 425 Exchange Street, Geneva, NY 14456. You can also nominate an honoree on my website at helming.nysenate.gov. All nomination forms are due by March 16, 2020.
As always, if I can ever be of service to you or provide additional information regarding the Women of Distinction event, please do not hesitate to call me. My telephone number is 315.568.9816.
