Women's Day at the Fair

Author: Communications Committee/Monday, September 9, 2013/Categories: General

Thanks to our members who helped to staff the booth during the mini-fair: Robin Allen, Robin Bridson, Sue Mager, Linda Przepasniak, Pat Fanning and Jacqueline Shellman. Special thanks to our Women’s Day at the Fair Chair Pat Fergerson who seamlessly coordinated our involvement.

In addition to the mini-fair, there was a Women’s Day luncheon, and our group was the largest women’s group represented with 24 members present. It was a great chance to catch up with each other and network with other women’s groups throughout the State. There were 155 women in attendance at the luncheon, which featured welcomes from NYS Fair director Tom Daly and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner. The keynote speaker at the luncheon was Joleene Desrosiers Moody who presented a presentation entitled “Take Your Voice Back.”

Overall, it was a great day, and I hope you can join us next year!
