Debra Jenkins of Merrimack Hall receives national honor
We are so proud that Debra Jenkins, our co-founder and executive director, was chosen as one of six women to receive Traditional Home magazine's 2009 Classic Woman Award. Traditional Home Editor in Chief Ann Maine honored Debra at the magazine’s Classic Woman Awards luncheon in New York City on November 24. All six recipients of the magazine’s fifth-annual Classic Woman Awards were present, a signature program that celebrates the spirit of volunteerism by recognizing standout charitable women from across the country.
In previous issues and on its Web site, Traditional Home invited its 4.7 million readers to nominate a woman who is making a positive difference in her community. The magazine’s editorial staff and the judges pored over the nominations to choose six women who truly are changing the world one day, one person at a time.
In addition, each honoree’s chosen cause received a contribution from Traditional Home. The women and their causes were also featured in the magazine’s November 2009 issue.
Please join us in congratulating Debra on her volunteer achievements!
