“In preparing for tonight's remarks, I found it a bit perplexing because our honoree has so many God-given talents ... not to mention being blond, beautiful and benevolent. It was hard to limit to just one page, if you know what I mean,” shared Ladies Hospital Aid Society executive director Dee Dee Troutman.

No need for further clarification on the evening of May 16, where the Duquesne Club was packed to the gills with guests eager to raise a glass many times over to outgoing society prexy Laura Penrod Kronk.

“I want to know who this woman is,” Kronk humbly jested, as a receiving line snaked its way out of the dining room. Joined by her husband,Claude, and daughter, Trinity, the Ladies Hospital Aid SocietyAnnual Meeting & President's Day celebration saw glasses in the air for the better part of the evening and accolades aplenty. Wildly apropos for the tireless leader whose time at the helm began five years ago, ensured the addition of 78 new members, and raised more than $1 million.

“My excitement is (that) we're just getting started. There's so much more to be done,” Kronk said.

Among the crowd of admirers were incoming prexy Carole Kamin (with husband, Dan, and sons Matthew, Michael, and Philip), Lisa andJoe Gaydos, Carrie Conboy, Jodi Amos, John and Judy Woffington, June Yonas, Mary Ellen Wampler, Alexis Wukich, Beverly Wukich, Ruby Kang, Dolly Warwick, Jayme Latta and Marcia Weiss.

“Laura's our girl,” Troutman said.
