Ethnic Heritage honors Dola Gregory as Irish Gallery Woman of the Year
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
To celebrate Irish culture this month, one local woman is honored for her impact in the community.
The Ethnic Heritage Museum honored Dola Gregory as their 2016 Irish Gallery Woman of the Year Sunday.
Gregory is a Rockford resident and the founder of Rock House Ministry. For more than 15 years, this award has been recognizing women who show community involvement through volunteering, dedication to church and family.
"Oh, it's wonderful and such a surprise, and I'm thrilled," said Gregory. "This is a wonderful museum, and just to hold the honor of the Irish Woman of the Year is awesome."
Gregory will be in the Irish parade Saturday, March 12 in downtown Rockford, and her exhibit will be on display at the museum through April.
