A dedicated mom is honored as the Albany Woman's Club Mother of the Year. This year's Mother of the Year is Johnne Sizemore of Albany.  She has five children and six grandchildren.

She has been an active member of the the Albany Woman's Club for five years and says being a mother is a hard job, but one that has big rewards."It's the hardest job in the world they say, and the most rewarding. And I say if you don't have any adopt, there is plenty of children to adopt and you will never be sorry. The more you have, the more fun it is after they are grown"said Mother of the Year Johnne Sizemore.

Johnne and her husband James adopted three of their five children. The Albany Woman's Club will soon celebrate its ninety-sixth year.  The Albany Woman's Club was the first civic organization formed in the city of Albany.
