The Girl Scouts of Nassau County preformed the Presentation of Colors ceremony and lead the Pledge of Allegiance. Nicole Dalto, Malverne, sang the National Anthem at the opening of the ceremony and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to close.

These women are an inspiration to us all and represent our communities in the best of light. I look forward to seeing and meeting more Women of Distinction for many years to come.”
