 Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this week I have the honor of 
recognizing Jo Laughlin and Doris McCorkindale for their impact on 
Fergus County and surrounding areas.
  Jo and Doris serve their local community as volunteers at the Central 
Montana Community Cupboard. Folks all over the community are grateful 
for the joy and light Jo and Doris bring to the families they serve. 
They have set a great example for all Montanans with their time and 
dedication as volunteers.
  For over 20 years, Jo has tirelessly served in various capacities at 
the Cupboard, as both a board member and volunteer. Her lighthearted 
attitude and selfless nature brings joy to the people she serves. At 89 
years old, Jo continues to serve as head volunteer, coordinating all 
food orders and overseeing the day to day operations at the Cupboard.

  Doris has served at the Cupboard as both a board member and volunteer 
for almost 20 years. As volunteer coordinator, she works to ensure an 
adequate number of volunteers are available to aid in daily operations. 
At the age of 91, she is still committed to the families she serves and 
does not intend to slow down anytime soon.
  I applaud Jo and Doris for leading a life of excellence and serving 
the struggling and the hungry of their community. Their commitment to 
their fellow Montanans, as well as their happy optimism towards life, 
is a shining example of the Montana spirit. Fergus County is lucky to 
have these two incredible women in their community as selfless
