Thanks to all who made our event so very special! In addition to the initiation of new members, our program honored the many accomplishments of Ruth Colvin, founder of Literacy Volunteers of America (merged with Laubach Literacy International in 2002, now ProLiteracy).  Ruth joined us to welcome new initiates and sign copies of her book. Learn more about Ruth through her National Women's Hall of Fame profile. We will post more photos in the coming weeks. We welcome photos from participants too! Please send your favorites to with your preferred attribution.
