Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson announced that nominations are now being accepted for the Town’s 2019 Women of Distinction Awards Program. At the start of Women’s History Month, residents are invited to nominate extraordinary women who have made a difference in their communities.
“Do you know an extraordinary woman who goes above and beyond to improve the lives of those around them, and to make our communities a better place to live? Nominate her to be a 2019 Town of Oyster Bay Woman of Distinction. This is an annual ceremony that recognizes women who have made great contributions to our community,” stated Councilwoman Johnson, who serves as the Chairwoman of the Women of Distinction Committee.
Supervisor Saladino stated, “We are proud to recognize women in our Town and invite residents to submit nominations of those who make a difference in our communities and enrich the lives of others. We look forward to sharing their stories and recognizing their efforts to make our community, families and Town a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
Women of Distinction will be recognized at a special awards ceremony hosted by the Town Board in May. Nominations may be submitted for any achievement or honorable cause performed by the nominee. The Town seeks to recognize individuals for their contributions to the arts, education, environment, athletics, community or civic service, volunteerism or business. Honorees must reside in the Town of Oyster Bay.
