Generations Bank announced on Tuesday that they will be launching the “Women’s Walk of Fame” project by unveiling the first of eleven bronze plaques on Friday, May 12th. The groundbreaking event will take place at their headquarters in Seneca Falls.
The project is aimed at honoring women of distinction in multiple categories, including Social Justice, Military, Arts, STEM, Pioneers, Business, and Athletics. The plaques were funded in conjunction with the Right to Run 19K, Inc., and will be placed in front of businesses in downtown Seneca Falls, resembling the iconic “Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
The first of the eleven plaques will be placed in the Generations Bell Park located on the corner of East Bayard Street and White Street. The bank hopes to get other businesses involved in the project to expand the walk of fame throughout the community.
“We are excited and honored to be able to display these plaques of distinction in front of our headquarters as well as other businesses in Seneca Falls,” said Menzo Case, President & CEO of Generations Bank.
The public unveiling of the plaques will include the installation of the first plaque and showcase the ten other businesses and recipients of the remaining plaques. The event will have refreshments, light fare, and more plaques describing the importance of the women chosen for the walk of fame.
The Women’s Walk of Fame project aims to recognize the contributions of women to society and inspire future generations of women to pursue their dreams and make a positive impact on their communities.
Seneca Falls is known as the birthplace of the women’s rights movement in the United States, and the Women’s Walk of Fame project is a fitting tribute to the town’s rich history of women’s empowerment and activism.
Generations Bank hopes that the Women’s Walk of Fame project will become a beloved attraction in Seneca Falls, drawing visitors to the town and highlighting the important role that women have played in shaping our society.
