Miss Ruth Peachey, President and CEO of Mabel Danahy/Miles Gardiner, has a long history of community involvement. She has been involved with several organizations, including the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and Children's Hospital.

Miss Peachey, a Williamsville resident, has recently been named Chairman of the Board of both Stonecroft, Inc. and Christian Women's Clubs of America. In addition, she has served as Chairman of Christian Business and Professional Women in Buffalo and has been a board member of the organization's Canadian branch as well. 

Although Miss Peachey doesn't like to give out her age, it s obvious that the pace she sets for herself is rigorous for anyone at any age.

Working recently on the new location of her Mabel Danahy store in Amherst, Miss Peachey shows her desire to keep her stores rooted in the tradition of the Buffalo area. Forever Young salutes Miss Peachey for her commitment to keeping Buffalo active.
