RYE, N.Y. -- The National Association of Professional Women's Westchester County chapter recently gathered for a networking meeting at Rye Playland.
The group of professional women enjoyed a day at the park that included rides, swimming, games, a barbecue and networking, the association said.
"We are an active chapter with interesting events and activities," Crystal Cutler, the association's Westchester County president. said in a prepared statement. "Our Friends & Family BBQ was a fun event that we hope becomes an annual Chapter tradition."
Nearly 70 members and guests converged on the 280-acre park and enjoyed rides and amusements, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a skating rink, restaurants, boardwalk concessions, two beaches and outdoor picnic spaces.
"Truly important connections were made among attendees for new jobs, business ventures and sales opportunities," Cutler said in the statement.
The previous month, the chapter’s charitable act was hosting a breakfast for a 18-year-old French foreign exchange student named Cyrine, who lives in the town of Cassis in the south of France. The chapter recognized Cyrine, who plans on studying law in college, with an honorary Chapter Member for the Day Award, as well as a journal and pin.
"With this act, our chapter has had far-reaching impact, sharing American culture and professionalism across both the seas and generations," Cutler said in a prepared statement.
The chapter also recently participated in this year's 30th Annual National Police Night Out in Yonkers, where the members visited four outdoor locations around the city for an evening of music, food, fun and networking. Every year, this event introduces local law enforcement to the communities they serve and promotes community participation in anti-crime efforts.
