Women Making a Difference in the Valley are honored with a tribute luncheon

The 10th Annual Women Making a Difference in the Valley Tribute Luncheon will be held October 7, 2010, at the Grassy Hill Lodge in Derby, Connecticut, from 12:00pm-2:00pm. The tribute recognizes those women who have shown notable achievement in their lives and professions and whose contributions have made a positive difference in the community.
