May’s President’s Message

“Anyone who does anything to help a child in their life is a hero to me.” Fred Rogers

This year my theme was Super Women and Superman. It was twelve months ago I introduced the theme and here it is May, and an entire year has flown by. I took on the position of president with trepidation. I was apprehensive, what would the future bring, would others follow my lead? I had not truly realized the strength of this community we call ALNC. The incredible leadership and knowledge along with overwhelming kindness and caring.

There are sixty-two women and men in positions of leadership! It is amazing that so many in our chapter have taken on responsibilities from board members, program directors, presidential appointments to Thrift Ship team leaders, many wearing multiple hats. In addition, there are all the members who lend their time and skills helping children choose a winter jacket, shopping at Penney’s with families, delivering books to school libraries, interviewing senior scholarship applicates, packing health kits and donating time in our Thrift Shop.

You are all an incredible group of generous people, and I am full of gratitude and awe. Maya Angelo said,” I’ve found that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I have felt so much support, you have made this another successful year for ALNC. You are definitely a group of Super Heros!

With sincere thanks, Cheryl McGlocklin
