Standing O pal state Sen. Martin Golden (R–Bay Ridge) celebrated Women’s History Month with a big whoop-de-do on March 12 at the Norwegian Christian Home and Health Center, honoring the best, brightest, and most dedicated women in the community with bowers of flowers.

The honorees were: Women’s Council of Realtors Brooklyn Chapter, Knights of Columbus Columbiettes Rev. Matthews Council #126, Healing Center New York Domestic Violence Counseling Program, Norwegian Christian Home, Guild for Exceptional Children, Parents Association of PS 277, and Coalition for Asian American Children.

Attendees included: Elsa McConeghy, Eleanor Bensen, Xinh Doherty, Tina Pappanastos, Anna Rutigliano-Conigliaro, Dawn Gerrity, Earnest Ragin, Elaine Stackhouse, Gladys Kongevold, Sharon Howe, Standing O’s very special niece Francesca LaRosa (recently appointed director of Human Resources at the Norwegian Christian Home), and Sheryl Larsen.

“These are remarkable women, who work, live, and contribute to our community, making our families stronger and communities better,” said Sen. Golden.

Could not agree with you more, Senator. Standing O sends out congratulations to these remarkable and dedicated women, and to Francesca LaRosa on her recent appointment.
