Congratulations to Ann Cobb for receiving the AHS Regional Service Award for 2014

Congratulations goes out to Ann Cobb.
Recipient of the Region 15 AHS Regional Service Award for 2014.

Ann has been supporting her local club as well as Region 15 for over three decades. At the local level, she has served as club Treasurer as well as President. During the club's annual shows, Ann has served in many areas, including Show Co-chair, chair of Classification, Tabulation, Clerks, Publicity, Awards, and Placement – often taking on multiple positions each year. She was instrumental in guiding her home club, as well as other clubs in the region, through the often confusing process of registering as non-profits with the IRS. During each Regional meeting hosted by the Raleigh Club since 1985, Ann has been a key part of the planning and hosting those who attended. In addition to the many ways she has served the region and its members, Ann has also shared many of our region events through her photography in the annual photo contests, as well as many photo contributions to The Hem-alina. Ann, from all of us in the region, we thank you.
