Building community one step at a time

In honor of Women’s History Month, I’m calling attention to a baker’s dozen of Sto-Rox area sheroes with the inaugural “Rocks Sheroes Community Builders Award.” I know I can’t be the only one who sees these strong women and so many others volunteering their heart, soul, time and talents to build community.

Without further delay, here’s the list for 2024. We’re hoping you’ll help us to compile the list for 2025.

  2. Dorothy Bennett
  3. Lynne Deliman
  4. MarySue Flick

  10. Adrienne Roberts
  11. Sandy Saban
  12. Kim Spriggs
  13. Denise Zellous
