For 25 years the Young Women’s Christian Association has recognized area women for their role in empowering women and promoting racial justice.
YWCA leaders say they are excited to share the Silver Anniversary of the Women of Distinction with the YWCA’s surrounding communities.
Past Women of Distinction Margaret Freer and Monica Bristow have accepted the role as chairs of the 2015 Women of Distinction Event. They are asking for help from the academy of the Women of Distinction and interested community members to help plan and organize a special anniversary event.
People interested in helping can call the YWCA before Sunday, Nov. 9, between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. at (618) 465-7774 or email the YWCA at email@example.com. The first planning meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 11, at the YWCA facility. The YWCA will announce a call for nominations of candidates for the 2015 Women of Distinction in January.
