Greenburgh Women Honored for Community Service

GREENBURGH, N.Y. – As part of Greenburgh’s celebration of Women’s History Month, 15 women from around the town were honored Wednesday for their contributions to the community.

From a former judge to village clerks to a superintendent, the town hall was filled with proud party-goers who earned their place among Greenburgh’s most revered females.

“We’re here to honor women who have made a significant impact on their communities and therefore, in the town of Greenburgh,” event organizer and Town Clerk Judith Beville said. "This is a special group."

Dozens of women, and a few reluctant husbands, packed into the town hall’s conference room for the fourth annual event.

Before the awards were handed out, the group celebrated the trailblazers of women’s rights throughout history. They are the unsung heroes who paved the way for females to be where they are today, Beville said.

“These women have paid the cost to the boss,” she read from a poem.

Image Musicians serenated the party-goers with soft blues tunes before they listened to a series of inspirational poems about love, strength and spirituality.

Later, Greenburgh’s cast of women leaders were honored, each awarded in a special presentation.

“It is an incredible honor to be on a list with such incredible women. It really is such an honor,” said Abigail Rockmore-Connett, First Lady in the Village of Dobbs Ferry and director of the seniors program, as she accepted her award.

Lena Anderson, president of the Greenburgh/White Plains NAACP, called the honor a humbling experience.

“I am humbled by this honor,” she said. “I am truly a servant of the community.”
