“It is truly wonderful to have had so many worthy nominees,” a statement from Grace’s office reads. “It speaks to the generous nature of Yorktowners, and that which truly makes Yorktown a great place to live. With so many worthy nominees, the task of nominating just one was a difficult one. The Town Board congratulates Katherine Quinn in her selection as this year’s Yorktown’s Women of Distinction and congratulations to all those who were otherwise nominated.”

Relatedly, representatives of the above-named organizations are invited to the inaugural meeting of the Yorktown Community Affairs committee tonight at 7 p.m. at Town Hall, 363 Underhill Avenue. (ARTICLE)
