ACTORSINGERS AWARD "PENNY" TO PENNY

The Nashua Actorsingers are proud to announce the establishment of the "Penny" award. This award was created to honor members of the Actorsingers who have served above and beyond the call of duty. It is with deep pride that the Actorsingers announce, at this time, the first recipient of the "Penny Award" is Mrs. Margaret (Penny) Tamulonis.

The Actorsingers are extremely proud to have Penny Tamulonis as active and dedicated member of their group, and we hope that she will inspire others to aspire to achieve the "Penny Award".
