Last night, at their dinner, Morality in Media gave out awards. I was completely surprised and most honored to accept, on behalf of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, an award for supporting traditional family values! Others who were honored included the Catholic Daughters of America, Mass. Family Institute, the Knights of Columbus, State Representatives Jim Lyons and Jim Miceli. Patrick Trueman, President of the national Morality in Media spoke brilliantly. He was a close friend of Dr. Joseph Stanton, so I was delighted to sit with him and reminisce.
Speaking of dinners, I want to let you know that the MCFL Banquet Committee is pleased to announce their decision to dedicate the 2014 Banquet to Joe Reilly, former Executive Director, President and Chairman of the Board. Also they asked me to tell you that almost all the tables are already reserved. I'm looking forward to seeing so many of you!
