QUEEN’S PARK – In celebration of Canada’s 150th and the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, MPP for Huron-Bruce Lisa Thompson and South Huron Mayor Maureen Cole will be co-hosting an event celebrating a Remarkable Assembly of Huron County Women. At the event, which is open to the public, over 150 remarkable women from across Huron County will be recognized for their contributions to their communities.

“Huron is home to so many incredible women: entrepreneurs, community advocates, elected officials, athletes, writers, community volunteers, entertainers, and artists. What they have in common is that they are all role models in their community and are an inspiration to women everywhere,” said Thompson.

The event will take place on June 15th at the South Huron Recreation Centre. There will be a 6:30 pm reception and a 7:00 pm dinner. MPP Thompson will be partnering with South Huron Mayor Maureen Cole, who is also one of the women being recognized at the event.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to salute the women of Huron County,” said Mayor Cole. “Our community is the vibrant, welcoming place that it is today because of their contributions. These incredible women lead by example to make a positive difference in their communities, and we are very grateful for all that they do.”
