Women Honoring Women nominations begin

Do you know a woman who is a terrific community contributor, generous volunteer and role model?

If so, it’s time to give her the much-deserved recognition she deserves.

Women Honoring Women, an organization formed 19 years ago by former Sandpoint Mayor Marsha Ogilvie, is accepting nominations for its Women of Wisdom award. The organization is accepting nominations of women 65 years of age or older who make a difference in the community with their impeccable character, generous spirit and selfless attitude.

“We also look to women who have demonstrated a vision for our community and who have achieved their goals through collaboration with others,” said Women Honoring Women Chairwoman Kari Saccomanno.

True to the award name, a love of learning and a commitment to the pursuit of knowledge through study and experience are important qualifiers, too.

The process begins with written nominations by friends and family. These letters should share personal stories of how the nominee has touched lives.

If you wish to nominate someone, send your letter by the March 1 deadline to 1481 Wrenco Loop Rd., Sandpoint, ID 83864. Or you can email it to [email protected]

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.
