In a ceremony to be held Thursday at Fort Hill Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua, Senator Pam Helming will honor 19 women from the 54th Senate District at her 2021 Women of Distinction.

Senator Helming said, “Across our area, there are amazing women doing extraordinary things for their communities, workplaces and families. As the first woman elected to represent the 54th District, home to the birthplace of the women’s rights movement, I feel a special responsibility to ensure we recognize and celebrate women for their contributions and achievements.

But collectively, they show that each of us can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.”
