During her visit to the Finger Lakes area, she also spoke to groups at the Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES, Bloomfield Central School, The Four County School Boards Association and The National Women’s Hall of Fame.
Habitat for Humanity President and Generations Bank President and CEO Menzo Case commented: “It is such an honor to spend time with someone like Lt. General Mutter.
