Issue 21, May 21

Last week we learned about the Guardian Ad Litem program from Case Coordinator Neci Williams. It is a state mandated program helping abused, abandoned and neglected children. Guardian Ad Litem volunteers can work 10 hours per month and make a huge impact in the lives of vulnerable children who need a voice in the court system.

This Wednesday we will have Channel 4 Meteorologist Richard Nunn as our guest speaker. If you’ve heard him speak before then you know he will have us laughing! Hurricane season is coming up so we need as much information as possible.

Monday, May 22 is our YAP Charity Golf Classic. All funds go directly to our scholarship program for college bound students (who were once 5th grade patrols that received funding from SBMC to visit Washington, D.C.).

Also, don’t forget to buy your raffle tickets for our YAP Wine Raffle. All tickets are $10.00 and you don’t have to be present to win. Please bring in bottles of wine to donate. One lucky raffle winner will win ALL of the bottles of wine that are being donated. The drawing will be held at our May 31st meeting, which will be our Scholarship Awards Program. We would like as many members as possible to attend this meeting to show our support to the students. You can purchase raffle tickets online and register for the meeting here.

See you tomorrow at the golf tournament or Wednesday at the meeting.

Issue 20, May 14

Our speaker last week was SBMC member Nico Hogeveen, Chairman of our 22nd YAP Charity Golf Classic. Each year we enjoy reflecting how this program came about in the 90’s. The Youth Achiever Program was founded by Fred Harford. Crump Kirby founded the YAP golf tournament and Jay Cann has been directing the golf tournament from the start. Now it has grown into one of our signature programs. It just goes to show you how one small idea can escalate into something huge! If you haven’t signed up for the tournament on May 22nd, there is still time. Please see below to learn more about it.

This week’s speaker is Neci Williams, Case Coordinator for the Guardian Ad Litem Program. Looking forward to hear about the wonderful things she is doing to help disadvantaged children right here in our community.

See you Wednesday!
