MEMPHIS, TN — On Saturday, September 28, 2019 the 20th Year Women of Stamina Awards Celebration & Torch Passing will be presented to the Memphis community. For twenty years Comrades N Community Inc. has been a champion for Women of Stamina
gifts being used to inspire, encourage and inform younger generations via their bio-created community events, and honoring God’s gifts to women 80 and older. We believe the more than 100 events presented has allowed WOS legacies to work its most marvelous purposes more effectively locally than any reading of them at a two-hour awards program could ever accomplish. The event begins at 4 pm and will be held at the Holiday Inn UOM, 3700 Central Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee 38111. Keynote Speaker will be State Representative London Lamar.
