Diamond a deserving recipient of Zonta award

Congratulations Ann Diamond, this year’s “Woman of the Year” as designated by the Alpena Zonta Club.

Diamond is one of those women who donates her time, skills and efforts in a number of different directions, for a number of worthy causes.

“I am just amazed by this and it is truly an honor,” Diamond said Wednesday. “I was reviewing the list of honorees from the past and they are such a wonderful and strong group of women. Now to be included in there with them, it is really a privilege and an honor.”

Whether at Alpena Regional Medical Center where she works, or any one of a number of different organizations throughout the community, Diamond always seems ready to pitch in and help. Her fundraising skills always are in demand, as are the leadership qualities and experience she has accumulated over the years.

Diamond is thorough, efficient and professional – she doesn’t sit still for long and always tries to anticipate the needs of others before herself.

While Alpena Zontians had a tough task before them in selecting a winner, we believe they did a good job by selecting Diamond for the honor.
