We provided two awards originated by our National Assistance League:
- Our continuing President, Gina Glenn, received the Ann Banning Award for her leadership during the two past years in guiding the many ways our chapter has expanded.
- Carol Tether received the Ada Edwards Laughlin Award for her past service as a board member and sustained commitment to the chapter more recently in a ‘behind-the-scenes’ capacity.
We also recognized six other members with chapter awards for their contributions to our achievements. Three members were recognized as Shining Stars for their dedication to a particular program or issue: Betsy Brand, Janet Fortney, and Carrie Sawicki. Two newer members, Josephine Johnson and Debbie Doody, received Supernova Awards for their willingness to begin helping with our various programs with great enthusiasm almost as soon as they became members. We also recognized Doug Ross as an Unsung Hero for the many improvements he has made to organize and update our website.
Our chapter is blessed with dedicated members who are committed to helping the most vulnerable in our community. The camaraderie and enthusiasm our members expressed at the luncheon bode well for another phenomenally successful year!
