Each year in March, Women's History Month is celebrated in Suffolk County. In 2002, the Legislature passed a Resolution (No. 786-2002) stating that each Suffolk County Legislator shall select a "Woman of Distinction" who resides in his/her respective Legislative District to be honored as such. For 2018, Legislator Tom Muratore named Ellen Morrison, a resident of Selden for over 45 years. Mrs. Morrison was joined by her husband Bruce, President of the Selden Civic Organization as she received her proclamation to commemorate the event at the March 20th General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature.
Ellen’s extensive volunteer work includes serving on the Bicycle Path Elementary School PTA, leading her sons’ Boy Scout Troops, and helping the American Cancer Society. In 2016, she helped organize projects in conjunction with the Selden Civic Association, including community clean-ups and fundraising activities. Also, Ellen is instrumental in the success of the Selden Civic Association’s monthly food drives.
“Ellen’s dedication and commitment to the Selden community is greatly appreciated and worthy of acknowledgment,” stated Legislator Muratore. “I applaud her efforts and take great pleasure in recognizing her as a ‘Woman of Distinction’ in my district.”
