Prospect Chamber brings ‘strong women’ to forefront

By Melissa Blankenship

The Prospect Area Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual “Strong Leadership, Strong Women 2014” conference on Friday at the Falls of Goshen Event Center. This year’s speakers focused on issues related to women’s health. Keynote speakers, Molly Hopkins and Cynthia Decker of Lifetime TV’s “Double Divas” (above left), delighted the crowd through sheer personality and southern twang. Aside from laughter, the Double Divas brought with them a serious message of correlating breast health with proper bra fitting. Above right, for her success as a local businesswoman, her commitment to volunteerism, civic and community service and for possessing great “ability, passion, energy and talent,” Terry Chambers was named this year’s Strong Woman Leader. “I’m completely surprised,” Chambers said with a chuckle. “Really, because I helped organize this event. You guys really kept this a secret.”
