Ken & Ellen Perkins
On Tuesday, April 18th the MountainView Ballroom was filled with friends and members of SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO), ready to celebrate 20 years of services that provide opportunities for kids to succeed in a specific geographic area.
Tables were decorated with black cloths, silver and gold balloons and stars. Hot appetizers were available and a beautiful cake commemorating the occasion was ready for the guests. There were many displays highlighting our programs that provide clothing, offer educational programs, and show support of the Tri Community Food Bank. A display of all the T-shirts from past Walkathons was a special remembrance of so many years and miles during which our friends have supported us.
The new slate of officers was officially elected to begin their term for the years 2017-2018. Members with many years of service were recognized, a bit of history was shared with all, and guest speakers spoke of the merits of SBCO in the fields of education and nutrition.
Volunteers of the Year
Each year a volunteer, or volunteers, are acknowledged for their generous time given to the programs of SBCO. This year SBCO recognized Bud and Karen Stott as the volunteers of the year. This duo has been involved in the organization since 1998; they have worked with Kids’ Closet, food drives, Teen Closet and wherever they saw a need.
Supporter of the Year
SBCO is pleased to name as Sponsor of the Year Mr. Marvin Rose of the Carioca Company, which now owns the Minit Market/Shell Gas Station located in the SaddleBrooke Commercial Center, next to the fire station on SaddleBrooke Blvd. Carioca’s management supports local area causes in their various business locations throughout the state. For our area they selected SaddleBrooke Community Outreach, specifically the education programs. Carioca Co. has been making generous donations each month since November, 2016 and has pledged to continue indefinitely.
The event ended with refreshments and the opportunity to meet the many “Ranchers” who have supported SBCO generously with their time and treasurers.
