WOW what a day for women

It was a day to remember for women of Greater Haverhill — from the turnout to the theme to a celebrity in their midst.

About 250 women packed the Atkinson Resort and Country Club Friday for the annual Winning Opportunities for Women conference.

The event is presented each year by the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce.

The key speaker was Mary Richardson, former host of the TV show "Chronicle'' and now community outreach coordinator for the Steward health network, which owns Merrimack Valley Hospital in Haverhill and Holy Family Hospital in Methuen.
