On March 16, 2007, Louis “Al” Brandt passed away after a prolonged illness. Al was the founder of the One Hundred Club of Glen Burnie. Al was introduced to the One Hundred Club in Chicago and always felt a chapter should be established in Anne Arundel County . After recovering from a serious, near-fatal illness in 1998, Al truly felt that one reason God spared him was that his work on Earth wasn’t complete – and to him, that meant bringing the One Hundred Club to Anne Arundel County . Al dedicated a lot of time and passion in gaining supporters for the One Hundred Club. He chaired the organization meetings to get the club on its feet and ready to prosper. Al stayed active in the One Hundred Club as much as his health would allow and held the title of Honorary Chairman until his death. The One Hundred Club membership has honored his memory and leadership by establishing the Louis Al Brandt Unsung Hero award, presented to an emergency service provider acting in exemplary fashion while on duty. The One Hundred Club continues to carry on Al’s legacy of helping others when they are in need.
