  • The Women’s Christian Association of Little Falls honored six women during its annual Women of Distinction Breakfast at the Knights Inn Thursday.
    WCA board members, previous honorees, public officials, state representatives, family and friends all gathered at the ceremony to celebrate the chosen women.
    During the ceremony, Mistress of Ceremonies Angela Harris asked those in attendance to look to their left and then look to their right.
    “We are surrounded by many women of distinction and today we are here to honor six of those women and their many accomplishments,” she said.
    The six woman honored were Jane Malin for arts and music, Geri Kazmerski for business, Tara Krasuski for education, Dr. Usha Wadhera for health care, Patricia Ralbovsky for religion and Faye Bunk for volunteerism.
    After the women received their awards they were presented with a proclamation from Little Falls Mayor Robert Peters.
    “As the mayor of Little Falls I would like to thank these six women who do all they do, and with this proclamation this week is your week in the city of Little Falls,” he said.
    Also in attendance were Senator James Seward and Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney.
    “I look forward to this event every year and this year there is a great group of honorees,” said Seward, R - Oneonta. “This morning I have heard so many inspirational stories and it’s a great day to celebrate the accomplishments of women who have touched so many lives over the years.”
    To further honor the women Seward presented the honorees with a certificate from the state Senate.
    “It’s hard going to Albany and seeing all the bad people do, but when I come to this area I see what great people are here in this community and it’s really an honor to be here with such great women who have accomplished so much,” said Tenney, R - New Hartford.
    Tenney also presented the six women with certificates from the state Assembly.
    Herkimer County Clerk Sylvia Rowan represented Congressman Richard Hanna and Assemblyman Marc Butler, who were unable to attend the ceremony and presented certificates on their behalf to honor the six Women of Distinction.
