Montana Registered Dietitian Day - Joint Proclamation
MDA thanks our member Pat Hennessey, MS, RD and 55+ year Academy member, for her continuous work to keep dietitians visible in Montana.
Pat wrote in her email of Sept. 2011:
Mike Menahan, our Rep, stopped by my house and gave me a copy of the proclamation.... I had asked him to read the one Mayor Smith had issued for us in the House and asked Mary Caffero to read it in the Senate. Well, Mike had one redrawn that was/is "A Joint Proclamation of the Senate and the House of Representatives of the State of Montana Honoring Dietitians." ...
This is a beautiful document and quite historical in that Carol Williams, Senate Minority Leader who is in her last term signed it as did Jim Peterson, Pres. of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, and Jon Sesso, House Minority Leader.
