WOD

Brewster, N.Y. – 8/22/2013 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) has announced that twenty-two women from throughout the 40th Senate District have been nominated for the 2nd Annual Women of Distinction Hall of Fame.

Created and hosted by Senator Ball, The Women Of Distinction Hall of Fame was designed to honor outstanding women from throughout the 40th Senate District. In March, Senator Ball asked every town, village and city in his district to submit a nomination for his 2nd Annual Women of Distinction Hall of Fame.

“The Women of Distinction Ceremony was a project I launched in recognition of Women’s History Month and inspired by the accomplished and outstanding women I have had the privilege of collaborating with through my current tenure serving the people of the 40th Senate District. While all those nominated have worked and volunteered without want of recognition, their efforts have not gone without notice or appreciation,” said Senator Greg Ball. “The diversity and depth of their work speaks to the amount of time and dedication each has volunteered on behalf of and in support of a simple truth; that all change is local. Each took it upon herself to respond to some compelling community need. These women did not wait or idle when the opportunity for real change presented itself. Instead, each used her own unique talents and skills to respond to an issue or challenge in her community that merited action.”

The Women Of Distinction Hall of Fame will be hosted on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at the Putnam County Emergency Services Building in Carmel NY starting at 2pm. The honorees will also be included on a ‘Traveling Wall of Fame’ that will be on display throughout Senator Greg Ball’s district.
