TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life
This coming Thursday the Delaware Art Museum will host the first in a new series of conversations with women making a difference in Delaware. On February 28th, the community is invited to an evening that promises to be both fun and inspirational.
 
Carol Arnott-Robbins, founder of NEWS4Women, will facilitate a panel discussion with Drew Fennell, Melanie Ross Levin, and State Senator Elizabeth “Tizzy” Lockman, followed by a Q&A session. Topics will include career highlights, life stories, and hard-earned wisdom from these three influential women. Ticket and registration information can be found here.
 
The event, which runs from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, is jointly sponsored by Blue Blaze Associates and NEWS4Women, and proceeds benefit the Delaware Art Museum.
