“One of the important things about Women’s Day event is getting as many women, within the church involved,” Ms. Fowler told The Toledo Journal. “And being that we were able to get new members involved in the planning, I would say this year’s event was a success,” she said.            

“Every day is women’s day,” Ms. Sumrow said. “Just like the theme of the event, we have to operate on faith, despite adversities. With the planning of such an important and large event, all of our faith was tested, but yet we prevailed,” she said.

During the planning of the event, committee members would jointly decide who would be the keynote speakers.

 “One of the committee members had heard Rev. Harrison speak in the past, and said she would be excellent for the event; which she was,” Ms. Sumrow said.

“I knew she was a good business minded person, but I didn’t know she would deliver the word that good,” Ms. Fowler said.

As far as Sis Vera Sanders, of Ebenezer delivering the word, both Ms. Fowler, and Ms. Sumrow said she was dynamic.

“I think her powerful message was a good example to other women of this church that they have the ability to deliver a similar message,” said Ms. Fowler.

“Her ability to deliver such a powerful message will be inspirational to the other women of the church,” said Ms. Sumrow.
