We had another successful ER Brunch on Saturday, September 19, 2015, at the Pocono Inne Town on Main Street in Stroudsburg. Our Keynote Speaker was Dr. Rachel Cardelle Associate Dean, Administrative Services, Northampton Community College, Monroe Campus. She spoke about the construction of NCC’s new campus and its positive impact on our community.
The Pennsylvania Federation of Democratic Women has honored our Monroe County Democratic Women's Club with their 2014 Club Achievement Award.
The 2014 ER Brunch took place on October 18, 2014 at Mullaly’s Clubhouse Café at Glen Brook Golf Club in Stroud Township. Our Keynote speaker, Ms. Sharone Glasco - Manager, Business Accelerator Program, ESU, & President of the Monroe County Chapter of the United Federation of Negro Women, spoke on “Integrating Women Leaders”.
2013: WOMEN MAKE A DIFFERENCE was the theme of the brunch. Keynote Speaker, Katie McGinty, spoke with pride about our Commonwealth, the opportunities for clean energy and related jobs, protection of the environment for future generations, and the importance of providing adequate funding and resources for our public schools. She also talked in depth about raising the minimum raise and how it boosts the economy by giving people the opportunity to purchase products in addition to what they need. Ms. McGinty relayed the benefits of the Affordable Health Care Act for women and emphasized the importance of privacy between a woman and her doctor in making medical decisions. Joining Ms. McGinty at the podium was Dr. Kimberly Adams, Professor of Political Science at ESU and Owner of Adams Political Research & Consulting. Dr. Adams gave a historic timeline of Women's involvement in politics and social causes starting with the American Revolution to the present.
Both speakers were in keeping with the ideas promoted by Eleanor Roosevelt and motivated the audience to become active within their community and support the causes that move it forward and benefit all within.
