Munchkins Unleashed

One of the favorite events at the Alpine Township Center is when preschoolers gather at the library and stop at the office for trick or treat. Staff is always prepared.  This year was no exception as the children enjoyed activities at the library and then toured our offices, led by Library Manager Shaunna Martz.

Judith McNally: THIS IS YOUR LIFE!

Members of the Alpine Township Historical Committee caught committee member Judy McNally by surprise this Sunday.  Thinking that she was to present a program about her well known button collection, Judy learned early through her presentation that the committee had other ideas and instead intended to honor her for her life and many contributions.  The 96 year old Judy is creating quite a legacy over her life span, beginning with her work during World War II with the Signal Corps and continuing today with her involvement in the Historical Committee, Audubon Society, and as a volunteer at the Veteran's Home.
 
Members of the Alpine Township Board were on hand and Township Supervisor Alex Arends read a proclamation honoring Judy and proclaiming Sunday October 19 as Judith L. McNally Day. Special guest at the event was Michigan State Representative Rob VerHeulen who took time from a busy week of campaigning to present Judy with a Special Tribute signed by him, Senator Jansen, and Michigan Governor Snyder.  Committee member Don Doyle read Judy's life story, from a book prepared by Marta Brechting.  Judy's life story in words and pictures was also converted to video format so that the large audience was as entertained as Judy was.
 
At the end of the program, Judy was also presented with a cake especially prepared for her in her favorite colors. 
 
THANK YOU, JUDITH MCNALLY, FOR WHO YOU ARE AND ALL YOU DO!
