Volunteer of the Year Award - Joanne Cabry

Joanne Cabry was awarded the Lois Lipsett Volunteer Recognition Award from the Shore Democrats for her volunteer efforts throughout the community. Truly a deserving recipient.

December 15, 2016

Dear Shore Democrats,

To accept the 2016 Lois Lipsett Volunteer Leadership award at the Holiday Luncheon was truly an honor and something I will treasure. As I mentioned at the meeting, when I looked around that room and saw so many of you that have done so much for our country, community, and party I was humbled and felt I was accepting the award on behalf of all of us.

It is especially meaningful to receive an award named after such a great person. Lois and I enjoyed talking about living in D.C. (which we both loved!) and our common experiences as teachers and counselors in public schools. Lois and I also enjoyed life after retirement as feisty grey-haired Democrats! I promise to honor her memory by continuing to speak out for those less fortunate as she did.

These are tough times for our country and our party, but I believe Ted Kennedy was right when he said, "We know the future will outlast all of us, but I believe that all of us will live on in the future we make." I am grateful for the opportunity to work with you to help create that future.

Thank you for the 2016 volunteer award. It means a great deal to me!
