Faye De Long Honored for 33 Years of Service
Pilgrim Armenian Congregational Church in Fresno held their annual Founders' Day dinner on January 25, 2015, commemorating the 114th anniversary of the founding of their church. Faye De Long, their organist for the past 33 years, was the honored guest. She was presented with a plaque, inscribed, in part, with "Thank you for 33 years of dedication and for the beautiful music you make and bring to us." She was also given an honoraria to be given to the San Joaquin Valley AGO Chapter, and a donation was made to the church's Music Endowment fund. The AGO chapter presented the plant seen in the picture (below) to her at the January AGO Board meeting. Faye's closing remarks to the guests present were "I have the same enthusiasm for this position as i had 33 years ago and have no plans to 'slide off the bench' yet."
