  Ms. FOXX of North Carolina. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize 
and celebrate the 100th birthday of Margaret Phillips Moore McClanahan 
of King, North Carolina. Margaret was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on 
January 16, 1920.
  Margaret is a graduate of King High School and the Women's College of 
the University of North Carolina--now the University of North Carolina 
at Greensboro. After graduation, she went on to complete a dietetic 
internship at the Duke University Medical Center and then served as an 
industrial dietitian at Western Electric for 33 years. From age 65 
until her 80's, she was heavily involved in public health in Stokes 
County.
  A woman who is invested in her community, family, and faith, Margaret 
has made a profound impact on western North Carolina. She was a 
founding member of the King Outreach Mission in the mid 1970's and was 
a founder of the Stokes County Habitat for Humanity in 1999. Since the 
founding of the King Outreach Mission, she's served as a weekly 
volunteer, board member, newsletter writer and editor, and organizer of 
a fundraising rummage sale which eventually led to establishment of a 
thrift shop.
  As an active member of her church, Margaret plays the piano for the 
Special Ministries program and previously served as the church 
historian. For years, she directed the preparation of Wednesday night 
suppers for church members who attended weekly groups. But her 
activities don't stop there. She also competed in Seniors Games and has 
gone in to win medals at the regional, state, and national levels in 
swimming.
  To her family, Margaret is the quiet, wise matriarch, and 
continuously showers love, pride, and wise counsel to her three 
children, two grandchildren, and three greatgranddaughters. Her 
compassion, modesty, and faith make her a remarkable role model. I wish 
Ms. Margaret Phillips Moore McClanahan a very happy--and blessed--100th 
birthday.
