Assemblyman McDonough pictured with the 2011 Women of Distinction
Assemblyman Dave McDonough (R,C,I-Merrick) yesterday held his 2011 Women of Distinction Event at the Merrick Public Library. McDonough honored eighteen women from the 19th Assembly District nominated by friends and family members for their outstanding service to the community in a variety of fields. During the ceremony, each recipient received an Assembly Proclamation thanking them for their tireless dedication to improving the quality of life in their community.
These notable local women have shined in the fields of business, community and civic affairs, education, government, healthcare, humanitarian and military services, said McDonough. It is my honor to present each recipient the 2011 Women of Distinction Award. This recognition shows how each has gone above and beyond making our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
