On July 31, 2018 Lois Garrabrant-Adlfinger passed away peacefully at Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette.  Lois is the longest standing member of the APICS Colorado Chapter.  She joined APICS October 1, 1981, so she had been a member of APICS almost 37 years.   Lois was a joy to the world and our chapter as anyone who knew her could quickly see.  She served several years on our APICS Board of Directors as Director of Social Networking, Administrative Manager, and Treasurer.  In addition to volunteering time holding positions on our Board, she also volunteered to do many other things for our Chapter.  Conducting nominations, BOD votes, swearing in officers, participating as our outside auditor of our financials, and helping with the Adopt a Family and Adopt a Highway needs. Within the past couple of weeks she had worked with the audit committee and participated in the Adopt a Highway program for the chapter.  In 2012 she was honored with our APICS Colorado Member of the year award.   She was loved by one and all that knew her.  The world has truly lost one of the good gals.

I will miss Lois as a great, loyal friend and Supply Chain colleague.  I already do.   Lois, Rest in Peace……………… Roger Harris

Hunter Douglas is more than deserving of this award from our Chapter.  Each year they send folks to our certification classes, provide time for Jamie to be part of our Board of Directors, they open up their world class training rooms for us to hold APICS certification classes on weekends, they match any donations employees make to our Adopt a Family program at Christmas and they also make Corporate donations to the APICS Adopt a Family program each year.  They are really great supporters of our Colorado APICS Chapter and programs.
