At Tuesday's meeting council members took turns telling
stories about first meeting Chrys, watching her on television over the years
and seeing her at various community events and fundraisers. Many council
members said they felt Chrys' accomplishments off the air are even more
important than all she has done on television. City leaders mentioned Chrys'
work with Race for the Cure and Home for Keeps.
"That's a lot to be proud of. In many respects, for being a
non-Toledoan, you are the city's biggest cheerleader and I think that too is
something that we should all be proud of," said councilman Tom Waniewski.
"As you reinvent yourself, which I'm sure you will, the
world is a better place, Toledo is a much better place because you've graced us
with your presence. And thank you so very much," said Mayor D. Michael Collins.
Chrys thanked the mayor and members of council for the
honor. She also took home a framed copy of the official proclamation.
