The New Canaan Chapter of the National Charity League honored its graduating senior class at the Senior Recognition Luncheon at Woodway Country Club.

The 20-member class of 2012 has fulfilled the philanthropic, league, educational and cultural requirements of the national organization. Over the course of their six years in NCL, the members, in grades 7 to 12, contributed more than 3,047 hours of service to the community.

In addition to be congratulated by their grade advisers, Susan Jensen and Kathy Parrett, the students were encouraged by NCL President Lisa Wrenn "to take all their knowledge from their six-year tenure in NCL with them as they begin yet another chapter in their journey."

The NCL is a nonprofit organization of mothers and daughters, who participate together in community involvement within 126 local chapters throughout the United States. The NCL instills a sense of community and responsibility, develops leadership skills, provides cultural experiences and strengthens the mother-daughter relationship. The daughters (grades 7 through 12) participate with their mothers in a six-year program of philanthropic work, educational activities and cultural events.
