At the annual ALDA Chicago birthday party luncheon today, I received the President's Award from Joe Linder and the board in recognition for my volunteer service. Words can't adequately express my love and gratitude for this support group. I have received more than I have ever given. It was an honor to have Joe say that I embody what the group is all about.
You may not know this, but ALDA national's slogan is lost my hearing, found a family. I can affirm this has been true for me with the ALDA Chicago chapter.
I would like to dedicate this award to my parents who have consistently demonstrated the joy of serving others.
