State Sen. Kemp Hannon is inviting residents of the 6th Senatorial District to nominate a special woman who has made a difference in the community.
“I’m inviting all 6th Senatorial District resident to nominate a special lady whose outstanding work on behalf of her community makes her deserving of special recognition by the New York State Senate,” said Hannon, R-Garden City, whose district encompasses Farmingdale.
“The Senate’s ‘Women of Distinction’ Program honors the remarkable efforts of local residents who contribute to making our communities better, our families stronger, and serve as examples to others,” he said.
The Senate will honor a distinguished woman from his district and throughout the state at a May 7 ceremony in the state’s capital, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special exhibit proclaiming their contributions. Sen. Hannon’s nominee will join other distinguished women from across New York State with a special reception and ceremony in the Legislative Office Building in Albany that day.
Previous winners in this annual event have included women from the world of business, academics and civic life, as well as those who have performed heroic or selfless acts, made significant discoveries, or provided examples of personal excellence against difficult odds.
“I welcome your nominations for my 2013 ‘Woman of Distinction,’ and encourage you to nominate your friends, coworkers and neighborhood leaders,” said Hannon.
To nominate a local woman for the honor, contact Hannon's community office at 516-739-1700 for more details, or visit his website: www.kemphannon.com.”
Anyone wishing to nominate a Woman of Distinction should provide a short cover letter supporting their nomination, and a 250-word biography and high-resolution photograph.
The deadline for submissions is March 22, 2013.
