Hastings Communications Coordinator, Lee Stoffel, was recognized as a local leader who has inspired others at Hastings’ First Women Inspiring Women event held at the Hastings Golf Club & Event Center in late September. Other women who received recognition were Noreen Bishop, of Emily’s Bakery & Deli, Jen Veith, Carpenter Nature Center Executive Director, and Minnesota Senator Karla Bigham. The event was branded as an opportunity to connect through story telling and unwind with a wine pairing presented by Alexis Bailly Winery and Hastings Public House.
