The annual YWCA Women of Distinction luncheon is coming up in May, but the list of honorees is out and includes women from the entire region.   This year will be the 22nd annual event, and over the years has included those females who have been leaders in their field of business as well as in volunteering.

Honored this year will be Mary Albert-Fritz of Brighton, Karen Baker-Brncic of East Alton, Toni Corona of Maryville, Debby Edelman of Alton, Barb Gillian of Godfrey, Fern Halliday of Shipman, Mattie Jean Miller of Alton, Diane Schuette of Wood River, Amy Sholar of Alton, and Karen Wilson of Godfrey.   The luncheon will be held at The Commons at Lewis and Clark Community College on Thursday May 24.  Tickets are available through the YWCA in Alton.

A special radio program featuring all the winners will air April 10 at 10am on Z-1570 during Let's Talk.
