Haven House Board names Women of Distinction honorees

The South Peninsula Haven House board of directors announced last week its 2019 Women of Distinction honorees.

They will be recognized at the Women of Distinction auction and dinner on March 29 at Alice’s Champagne Palace.

Each year the Board of Directors requests nominations from the community for women who encourage the potential of all women as valued members and leaders in the Homer area.

The honorees are:

• Cinda Martin, honored as Woman of Distinction for her work and passion working with numerous community groups, organizations, and causes in the Homer area.

• Denise Clyne, honored as the Woman of Wisdom for her generous spirit, compassion and tireless support of Homer’s community organizations.

• Cora Parish, honored as the Young Woman of Distinction who, at Homer High School, has shown herself as someone who is always willing to lead by example and who understands and appreciates the skills and perspectives of her fellow students.

South Peninsula Haven House staff have selected Anna Meredith as their Hero of the Heart who will also be honored during the Woman of Distinction celebration. Meredith, through her work at the REC Room, has been recognized for her hard work empowering and building respect for youth, and her skills connecting with people of all generations.

Tickets for the Woman of Distinction dinner and auction can be purchased at the Homer Bookstore or at South Peninsula Haven House offices for $50 per person.

Doors open at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 6 p.m.
