It was an uplifting morning at our Rotary Club’s 2nd Annual Women’s Empowerment Fair on January 20 as a dozen groups shared information about their work to support women and children in our area.
Keynote speaker, Mercer County First Assistant Prosecutor Jennifer Downing-Mathis, had a special message for the younger women and girls in the audience, encouraging them to work hard to achieve their dreams, set and maintain high standards, do their best to make an impact, and keep a sense of community and inner strength.  “The sky’s the limit,” she said.
In addition to our Rotary Club, groups in attendance included Womanspace; Homefront; Dress for Success; Girl Scouts - Hamilton; Girls on the Run NJ East; The Father Center; S.H.I.N.E.; One Simple Wish; Dream of Blue Skies; Shine and Inspire; and RWJU Hospital Hamilton, which also hosted today’s event in the RWJ Fitness and Wellness Center on Quakerbridge Road.
Kalpana Patel, the Rotary Club’s Immediate Past President and chair of the event, and current Club President George Ott thanked the groups for their partnership in the event and for their important efforts in the community.
