AAA Legislative/Advocacy Committee Receives Ally of the Year Award


Presented by Colonial Club Executive Director Bob Power on 5/22/19 “for the consistent manner in which [the Committee] has pushed for increased funding for designated priority areas. These efforts are making a true impact on the lives of older adults in Dane County. While [the Committee members] are not Colonial Club volunteers in the traditional sense of the word, [their] dedicated volunteer work has benefitted the Colonial Club and the rest of the Dane County Focal Points. We are proud to partner with [the AAA Legislative/Advocacy Committee] on behalf of older adults.”
