The "Great Futures Luncheon" brings out leaders within the community who are dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth in Maury County, specifically those of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maury County. A full house of 300+ showed up for the April 4th luncheon to show their support for the Clubs and the board members who have provided leadership and dedication to it.
The boys, girls and staff of the Club reciprocated by showing their appreciation and talent through dance performances and singing. They also provided handmade place mats, colored by Club children and several of the youth sat at each table.
The New Board Member of the Year was given to Wes Kelley, Executive Director of CPWS. Mr. Kelley is pictured below.
