September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and this year Washingtonville was asked to Turn the Town Teal a little differently. On August 31, a team of volunteers set up their chairs across from Betty’s Country Kitchen, and with masks and social distancing, handed out teal ribbons to community members. They were asked to display their ribbons on their own private property. Approximately 50 ribbons were given out by Mary Spear, Karen Goldsmith Mastropietro and Janice Valentino. If you were not able to get your ribbons, please consider putting up your own teal ribbon on your mailbox or front door.

Ribbons were provided by Nicole Feller Lee, founder of the Corinne Feller Memorial Fund for Ovarian Cancer Research and Awareness. For more information about Ovarian Cancer and symptoms, go to www.corinnefeller.org.
