Spotlight-on-Women-1-600x600We were honored to be asked to be part of the “Spotlight on Women” coming up this Thursday at 6 pm at Samuel’s Public Library and sponsored by the Front Royal Women’s Resource Center.  We hope you will attend.  The annual Spotlight Program highlights the achievements of women in our community and also supports The Front Royal Women’s Resource Center mission of empowering women to change their world. This year’s program, Main Street Women of Warren County, will give voice to the growing number of women business leaders in our community who make Front Royal a better place to live.
Women-owned businesses currently make up 39% of the 28 million small businesses operating across the United States and the U.S. Census Bureau shows that the number of women-owned businesses increased by 45% from 2007 to 2016. The Main Street Women of Warren County panel discussion will spotlight the importance of women-owned and operated business in our community and also highlight the unique accomplishments and challenges faced by our local women business leaders.
Panelists include Jean Plauger, Owner Jean’s Jewelers, Kerry Barnhart, Owner of Vibe Properties & Front Royal Brewing Company and Kelly Walker, owner of The Studio-A Place for Learning. Felicia Hart, Director of Tourism & Community Development for the Town of Front Royal will serve as a moderator for the event.
