Honoree 2015 – Melodee Fahy

Congrats to Melodee Fahy for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Name:  Melodee Fahy

Nominating Organization:  Assistance League of Orange

Honoree Category:  Human & Community

Why Nominated:  Melodee has held a wide range of critical roles within the Assistance League of Orange volunteer structure during her 15 years as a member. She served two separate terms as President and President Nominee, was Treasurer of our organization for 2 1/2 years, has chaired the Electronic Communication Committee since its inception, and is currently 2nd VP Philanthropic Programs, a position which has responsibility for overseeing all of our Chapter’s service programs in the community. She has brought our Chapter along technologically, turning our website into a true resource for members and friends, and converting virtually all of our Chapter communication to electronic form. She publishes our annual directory, maintains our online calendar and archived files, and sends out all of our E-Blasts. These are jobs that would be exceedingly hard to accomplish without her involvement, which makes her the perfect candidate to receive this award. Her dedication to the organization is unparalleled, averaging 750 volunteer hours per year over the past 7 years. She is exactly the kind of volunteer about whom we wonder, “what would we do without her?”

Enjoy your “day in the spotlight”, knowing that all your time, effort and energy at Assistance League of Orange has not gone unnoticed. I look forward to offering a “Cheers to You” in person. Char

  4. Congratulations Melodee!!! You were President of ALO when I joined, and I immediately felt part of the group, partly because you went out of your way to learn my name,took time to greet me at each meeting, and even included me in a general meeting by having me led the Pledge of Allegiance. Now, being on the Board with you I see that your positive attitude,enthusiasm, and willingness to pitch in when help is needed enables AOL to better
    serve the needs of the citizens of the City of Orange.I am also constantly inspired by your technology know how and ability and patience in sharing it.

  5. Congratulations Melodee. Thank you for your many years of service to Assistance League of Orange and the community.

  6. Congrats Melodee! Do you know how to say, “No”? I have only heard your response to be, “Yes!” no matter what is asked. Thank you for not only helping the Orange Community but also helping all the members in the Assistance League. I know your time is valuable but you still find time to help individual ALO members learn skills on the computer. A special thank you for saying, “Yes” to me when it came to babysitting my neighbor’s Newfounland dog. The “HUGE” dog issue proves my point that you don’t know how to say, “No”! You are “The Best”!
