2013 Volunteer Appreciation Banquet

The 2013 Volunteer Appreciation Banquet held on Thursday, April 25th which recognized mentoring volunteers as planting seeds and producing fruit in the life of children in our community. Held at Bowling Green Christian Church with food and beverages provided by Montana Grille, Sonic, and Griff's Deli, this year's banquet drew a large crowd of volunteers and their family members. Big Brothers Big Sisters is extremely grateful for the dedicated and valuable volunteers and partners that serve our children all year.

A distinguished award, the "Lifetime Achievement Award", was presented to Big Sister Katie Sublett for her 9-year match relationship with her Little Sister, Uniqua. Katie and Uniqua found common interest quickly in their match and have now built an inseperable bond with each other. Our agency is very proud of their proven friendship and for Uniqua's upcoming college career now that she is finishing high school. For her efforts and their excellent friendship, Katie was recently presented with the WBKO "Hometown Hero" Award. To hear Katie speak about their friendship in her own words, visit http://www.wbko.com/news/misc/8410742.html
