Lorraine Butler has received many awards in her Lifetime and most recently, the Janet Smith Memorial Shining Star Award, given by Play Among the Stars, a local theater troupe. Lorraine was acknowledged for her accomplishments in her home town newspaper not only for this award but for the many ways she has contributed to her community in her lifetime. Lorraine is proud to tell others that she lives a full life. This includes having cared for her grandmother so that she could remain in her own home for many years, as one of her most important accomplishments. Lorraine has also served as a member of the Community Crossroads Board of Directors and on the People Power Self Advocacy Committee. Lorraine was honored last year for her advocacy on behalf of individuals with developmental disabilities through the People First of New Hampshire.
We are appreciative and proud to have Lorraine doing so much for the community in which she lives and for Community Crossroads.
