It's a wonderful and well-deserved tribute, but I would like to applaud the efforts of the white-haired ladies who devoted years and years of volunteer effort to build a strong foundation for the local AF chapter. In the photo you'll see the name Melva Lind. Thanks to her efforts and those of many other devoted members, this AF chapter was selected to benefit from the services of a series of directors sent from France over at least 15 years who helped those devoted volunteers build the education program and purchase the building which is now a permanent home. They may not have been "jeunes" or "cadres" but they were both "dynimiques" and "devoted", and this renaissance is really the next steps of that vision. The current generation is doing great work, but I want to pay tribute to those without whose efforts this probably would not have been possible.
