"We are so pleased to be honouring Mrs. Geneva E. Rutherford for our first event in Freeport! " said Patricia Chiatti of Cia Monet. "She is most definitely a community builder of Grand Bahama, and has contributed countless hours to help others. She is currently spearheading a national partnership project with the Bureau of Women’s Affairs."
“To be publicly recognized at any time in one’s professional life is a tremendous honour that few persons receive in spite of their efforts and the successes achieved. I am humbled and most grateful for being extended such an honour as you seek to promote recognition of major issues affecting women and the principles of the Bureau of Women’s Affairs," said Rutherford. "Please know that there are many, many other women on Grand Bahama who deserve this recognition for their personal sacrifices, contributions and efforts in building communities of this island."
