Elected officials in Maplewood and South Orange, in partnership with township departments, divisions, and organizations, join with local business districts to celebrate the achievements of women. “We invite residents to celebrate our mothers, daughters, sisters, educators, mentors and friends” said Maplewood Township Committeewoman Nancy Adams, “our two-town leadership is filled with support for the contributions of women throughout the years and especially today! Women are carrying the weight life in “sheroic” ways: juggling their careers, families, homes, elderly parents, and their children’s education and futures.”

Sheena Collum, first woman to hold the title of Village President in South Orange, is proud that SOMA will honor our women in a variety of ways. “Our goal is to elevate, empower, support and showcase women throughout our community in our two towns.”
