Sep 4 – Ribbon Cutting at the YWCA

My son Isaac and I headed out early to finish setting up the exhibit – putting the pink ribbon tags and story cards on each entry. Soon Vikki Collazo of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce arrived with a HUGE pair of scissors! Isaac was impressed! He wanted to cut the ribbon, but was satisfied in just holding an end.

Kevin McCabe, the regional representative to Gov. David A Peterson, presented a lovely letter from the governor sending us greetings and thanks to the Common Threads Quilters Guild for hosting this event.

Crystal Lown, Program Coordination of Encore Plus, staff from ACS, Encore Plus and Greater Binghamton Chamber join in while I cut the ribbon. Gina Chapman of the American Cancer Society, Director of Special Events, Southern New York Region assisted Isaac with holding the ends of the ribbon.

Reporters from Fox New 40 (Sarah Blazonis) and Action News 12 (Caitlin Nuclo) were present at the ribbon cutting. Video journalist, Neil St. Clair from News 10 Now and a representative from News Channel 34 came afterwards.

The following are videos / article from the days’ events:
