Women’s Day was Wednesday August 29th, 2012 at the NYS Fair. There were 24 women from NYS Women, Inc in attendance (130 total). The topic, “DeClutter and Simplify Your Life”, by Deb Cabral, the DeClutter Coach was well received. The morning program, “Battling the Silent Killers of Women”, by Freida Weeks and Leisha Tedford, confirmed how important it is to look after ourselves. The morning and luncheon speakers’ universal theme of our health is timely. Cheryl Lavin, Director of the Women’s Building, arranged a very large luncheon (marvelous dessert), decorated the room, obtained Women’s Hall of Fame material and provided great coordination. Local television personality, Liz Ayers, introduced the dignitaries in attendance including the 25th District Congresswoman, Anne Marie Buerkel and Syracuse Mayor, Stephanie Miner.
