A Very Special Guest Honors Our Founder

Sunday’s 30th Anniversary Party honoring Paulette Goodman was a wonderful event.  Hosted my Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett and his wife Catherine, the party brought together old friends from the chapter’s early days with volunteers, staff and supporters who continue to carry the task of “Keeping Families Together.
