Bev Farha is our Ada Edward Laughlin Award winner!
The Ada Edwards Laughlin Award was established in the 1980's and is presented to a member whose behind-the-scenes contributions to her chapter are considered to be significant and which exemplify the attributes of Ada Edwards Laughlin. Ada was the right-hand woman and often silent partner of Ann Banning, founder of Assistance League. Ada served as Vice President of Assistance League from its foundation in 1919 until her retirement in 1948. Bev Farha is a charter member of ALW and truly exemplifies the attributes of Ada. She has quietly and without fanfare worked tirelessly over the years to move our chapter forward. Her selfless attitude was evident when presented with the award as her only words were, "I haven't done anything." Bev is the best example of giving from the heart, she is a hard worker and is a joy to be around. Congratulations Bev!
