“There are remarkable women in our midst whose lives, work or special accomplishments contribute to making our communities better, making our families stronger and serving as special examples to others,” Addabbo said in a statement issued by his office last week.
He said the Women of Distinction program provides a special opportunity to honor women for their achievements and to thank them for the pride they bring to their communities.
