In an abundance of caution related to COVID-19, the Town of Brookhaven has made the difficult decision to temporarily postpone our Women’s Recognition event. The health, safety, and well-being of our community members is our top priority. This is an evolving situation that  we will continue to monitor. We will be rescheduling the event sometime soon.
