Great to see these folks get the props! Huge shout out to Annette who got me my start in public service and community volunteering. And she's so passionate about emergency preparedness, she makes it fun to be prepared. She is an inspiration in my life. Countless others I know point to Annette as an instigator, a connector and a community booster. We see each other at civic events and meetings. Thank you Avenidas and PAWeekly for recognizing her efforts as well as the other deserving folks here.

Just sign me,

Another Adoring Fan of Annette
