According to the newspaper, "She initiated the fundraiser, was the first chairman and has co-chaired and participated in various aspects through the years. The Festival of Trees luncheon was last week at The Center for Visual & Performing Arts in Munster and the display of 22 full-size and pencil decorated Christmas trees will remain in the center's atrium until early January ... Glaros is a 24-year member of the Women's Association of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Society. She is a board member of South Shore Arts and active in Service League of Hammond. She and her husband have worked with Habitat for Humanity and Glaros used to be involved in Munster Junior Women's Club."
