The Board of Governors honored Lorna Aldrich and Bill Miller on Monday night for their "extraordinary and dedicated services" to the National Press Club in writing, editing and laying out the Club's newsletter, the Record.

President Donna Leinwand described the two editors as "absolute stalwarts who were always cheerful and dedicated" as she introduced a resolution that the Board unanimously adopted at its monthly meeting.

The Board gave a champagne toast to Aldrich and Miller, who expressed their thanks for the support and assistance they had received from NPC presidents and Club members who had worked on the Record staff. The last regular issue of the Record was published on June 1. It has been replaced by the Wire, the online newsletter distributed four times a week.

The full resolution said:

"And whereas Lorna and Bill have repeatedly extended their commitment to The Record at the request of the Board of Governors and three presidents,

"The National Press Club commends Lorna and Bill for their outstanding contributions in service to the National Press Club."
