Denver - Axum Committee
Gloria Curtis
                     
Gloria Curtis accepts her award from Axum Chair, Chuck Kreiman
Gloria has been a stalwart supporter of the Axum committee since its beginnings. This year is no different. 
She has devoted hours creating Ethiopian jewelry that she markets for the benefit of the committee. She is also the custodian of other Ethiopian artifacts that are also sold for the benefit of the committee's activities.
Most importantly, Gloria is there; at committee meetings or hosting a meeting; helping at whatever event comes up: Taste of Ethiopia, the Axum picnic, or the Worldwide Festi val.

A great big THANK YOU to GLORIA!
