Great Futures Start Here Celebration Dinner to Recap 2017 at the Boys & Girls Club

On Tuesday, February 6th, the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh will hold its annual Great Futures Celebration Dinner and annual meeting hosted by the Club’s Board of Directors which will take place at the Waters in Oshkosh. Early each year the Boys & Girls Club holds a meeting to recap the previous year including a president’s report, program report and a financial report.

The meeting will feature a sit down dinner and an introduction of the Club’s 2018 Youth of the Year, Club Member and North High School Junior Nichole Van Hoof. New members are also welcomed onto the Board of Directors and awards are presented to recognize those friends of the Club who have shown notable commitment to the Boys & Girls Club’s mission.

The Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh is proud to announce the following award honorees.

Bemis Company, Inc. will be presented with the Club’s Kids & Community Award, an award given to an area business which has demonstrated community leadership in supporting the mission of the Club.

Todd Reuss, a dedicated volunteer at the Club, will be presented with the Award of Merit, which is given to volunteers who have made an extraordinary contribution of time and resources.

Mary Johnson will be presented with the J.R. Vette Friend of Youth Award, which is given to a board member who has put forth outstanding efforts to further the mission of the Club and is named in memory of former lifetime board member J.R. Vette.

Angela Koepke, administrative services coordinator at the Boys & Girls Club, will be presented with the Professional Service Award, which is given to a staff member who has rendered unusually devoted service.

The Boys & Girls Club would like to thank all those who made 2017 a successful one and happy one for numerous local youth the Club reaches through membership and outreach. Without support from the Club’s Board of Directors and community, the Club would not be able to improve the lives of children and families in Oshkosh.

The meeting will take place at the Waters, 1393 Washington Ave in Oshkosh. Registration and social hour is from 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. Dinner, catered by Zuppas, will be served promptly at 6:00 p.m. with the annual meeting and a short program to follow from 7:00 – 7:30 p.m. The cost to attend is $35 per person.
