Alden Men's Club
Helping Others in Need
Man of the Year
One of the things that has always impressed me about
our members, is that none of them go around
"blowing their own horns" about what they do in the
AMC. They just quietly go about the business of
helping those in need. And one of our quietest
members is Truman Bicum.
Truman agreed to be in charge of cooking for our
monthly meetings for one year - and that was more
than four years ago! All this time, he has quietly
chosen the menu and purchased the food. Then, on
the day of the meeting, he and his world-famous
cooking crew arrive 1-2 hours early to put together
an excellent meal. Truman is so low-key about it all,
that if he didn't walk around the tables offering
more food or clearing people's plates during the
meeting, we would hardly know he was there at all.
We frequently have to call him out of the kitchen
when we need his input or to participate in a vote.
By the time the meeting is done, Truman's crew has
the kitchen cleaned up and are ready to leave. All of
this happens behind the scenes, but we couldn't do
what we do without Truman.
