The 11th House District Women’s Day was held at the state capital in Atlanta on Wednesday.  Around 80 women from Chattooga and Floyd County travelled to Atlanta with State Representative Barbara Massey Reece to take part in the event.

The event was sponsored by private industry and did not cost tax payers.  Some of the contributors to the event included Mt. Vernon Mills in Trion, Temple – Inland in Rome and Coca-Cola.

The women heard from Ingrid Saunders-Jones, Vice President of Global Community Connections for The Coca-Cola Company at a luncheon sponsored by Coke.  AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio will have more on the event in upcoming newscasts.
