Congratulations to Board Members Ginny DeJohn and Bob Kernan!!!

Virginia (Ginny) De John was named the 2013 Woman of the Year by the Seneca Falls Women’s Coalition.  Ginny was honored at a dinner in March 2014.  Resolution K862-2013, adopted by the New York State Legislature in February 2014, reads in part:  “Virginia DeJohn has given not only of her time and energies but also of her competence, intelligence and leadership and consequently has been designated for special honor . . .A strong member of her community, Virginia DeJohn is the longest seated board member for the National Women’s Hall of Fame, . . . This extraordinary woman has been called upon to contribute her time and talents to countless civic and charitable endeavors and has always given of herself unstintingly. . .”

Bob Kernan received the Partnership Award Generations Bank which recognizes an individual affiliated with the bank who has shown a commitment to achieve the best results for the bank’s customers and community through an extraordinary effort.  On the occasion of this award, the citation read in part:  “The National Women’s Hall of Fame achieved a milestone this past year, raising sufficient matching funds for grants needed to cover the $1.2 million Phase I and Phase II costs associated with the renovation of the Seneca Knitting Mill, the future home of the Hall.  One of the key factors in achieving the objectives was the direct involvement of our Board Chair, Mr. Robert E. Kernan.  He was called on to approach local municipalities, businesses and individuals to present an opportunity to contribute to the cause – creating a unique destination in Seneca Falls to showcase and to commemorate the contributions of great women. . .”
