“The most important aspect of being a member of the Tocqueville Society is that you are helping to make your community a better place to live by supporting United Way which makes a real difference in people’s lives.”
- Travis Storey,
“As soon as individuals with a cause have found one another out, they combine. From that moment, they are no longer isolated people, but a power seen from afar, whose actions serve as an example, and whose language is listened to.”
