In 1987, Congress declared Women’s History Month to be celebrated annually in March. It is a time dedicated to commemorate and highlight the notable accomplishments of women who have contributed to society. In honor of this year’s Women’s History Month, I am seeking nominations to recognize women in the Pelham community for my fourth annual Women of Distinction Awards.
This year, County Legislator Jim Maisano and Town Supervisor Peter DiPaola will be joining me to celebrate the remarkable women of Pelham who inspire and help make the world and our area a better place. We will be honoring them at a special awards ceremony on Saturday, April 29 at 4 p.m. at The Daronco Town House located at 20 Fifth Avenue.
If you know of a Pelham woman who has broken barriers, paved the way for a brighter future or shaken things up for the greater good of the community, I’d love to hear about her. Awards will be given to women for their work in various fields, including health care, business, volunteer work, education, humanitarian work and military service.
For more information on the Women of Distinction awards, please call Lisa Hofflich in my office at 914-723-1115.
Nominations can be faxed to 914-723-2665 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must include the nominees’ qualifications, why she should be considered as a Pelham Woman of Distinction, and all contact information including telephone, email and address. If nominations are emailed, please include “Pelham Women of Distinction” in the subject line. The deadline for submitting nominations is April 1.
