(Long Island, NY) On Saturday, a group of eleven local women were honored for their efforts to help build better communities. As part of his 2013 Women of Distinction ceremony, Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci (R,C,WF,I-Huntington Station) celebrated the efforts of the 11 women in the fields of business, education, humanitarian work, military service, community/civic affairs and healthcare.


Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci joins the 2013 Women of Distinction honorees.

“Our community is blessed to have tremendous women who have enhanced the lives of countless residents from Long Island and beyond,” said Lupinacci. “These women are responsible for amazing acts of self sacrifice and progress that have transformed our communities. Whether it’s opening the world of reading to young minds, raising awareness of domestic violence, or helping those less fortunate across the globe, each has made a lasting impact on the lives they’ve touched. They come from all walks of life; they are mothers, grandmothers, doctors and teachers, and I encourage everyone to thank them for their dedication and service.”

The 2013 Women of Distinction honorees were: Alyssa Sue Taff of Huntington, Denise Elmore of Huntington Station, Florence Johnson of Huntington Station, Fran Leek of Huntington, Gail King of Dix Hills, Irene Moore of Huntington Station, Lesa Dresher of Huntington Station, Lidia Szczepanowski-Goldsmith, Esq. of Dix Hills, Dr. Maureen Theresa Murphy of Melville, Patricia Dillon of Huntington, and Tracy Lobdell of Huntington Station.

“Once again, I want to thank those who nominated these women and most importantly, thank these distinguished women for their continued commitment to a better Long Island,” Lupinacci concluded.
