On March 29, women were invited to attend the second annual Women’s Symposium, Education to Entertainment: A Morning of Learning, Listening and Laughter, sponsored by the Floral Park Lions Club in collaboration with District 20k2. Through the generosity of the Sewanhaka Central High School District and Floral Park Memorial High School principal Dr. Kathleen Sottile and staff, the school hosted the event for the second year.
Women’s positions and responsibilities are constantly changing and there is an ongoing necessity to provide women with a forum by which to address these and other demands. The symposium concentrated on many current issues in 16 diversified and enlightening workshops.
