The Elsie Paris Friendship Award

 

The Elsie Paris Friendship Award was established in 1996 to honor Elsie Paris for her dedication and unselfish friendship to the members of the GTFWC.  Since then, each year the Spring Luncheon Committee selects a
recipient who goes out of her way to help others and to make the GTFWC a better organization.
