On Friday, May 4, I was the proud recipient of the Living Treasure Award from the Orange Community Services for volunteering in town. I am grateful for the gifts I continue to receive as a volunteer in town. It has been through volunteering that I continue to experience your gifts of friendship. I have lived in Orange for 51 years. I am fortunate to call Orange my home and you my friends. To everyone who attended the 14th annual Living Treasure Award Dinner, I would like to thank all of you for making my evening so very special. I am very grateful to have my name added to the Living Treasure plaque.
