Los Alamos Family Council founder Margaret Browne was the honored guest at the organization’s 45-year anniversary celebration Thursday at Los Alamos National Bank. All eyes were on Browne, 84, as she addressed current and former employees and board members, and the public. “It’s been a joy to work with this group through the years,” Browne said. “I’ve worked with some wonderful people.”The crowd clearly felt the same way about her. “Margaret is just a miracle that we’ve been fortunate to have,” said Family Council Executive Director Joy Beery. Beery has led the nonprofit mental health organization since 2001. The Central Office and former Los Alamos High School administrator first worked with Browne in the 1980s. “Back then, Margaret would come to the schools and provide consultative services to administrators and counselors before they had psychologists and social workers,” Beery said. “I had a lot of experience with this (Family Council) so it was exciting to come to work here knowing its history and knowing several people on the board whom I admired for their dedication.”Beery credited Browne for starting many programs in the community through the years including most of the senior services, the Day Out program, RSVP, support services for the home bound and summer jobs for teens.
