Virtual Celebrate Great Futures Week a Success!

Each year, we take time to recognize the many accomplishments made over the past school year at all of our afterschool program locations through our annual Celebrate Great Futures event. This year, due to the current circumstances, we took our event to social media in lieu of an in-person event. We created a Facebook photo album to honor each of our 2020 award winners, continuously adding photos and videos throughout the week of May 11-15. Despite the challenging times, this was a huge success and gave us a unique opportunity to virtually display the great impact the Club has on so many youth in our community, as well as the incredible partnerships that have been created and continue to grow. 

Since 2014, Marian University has been graciously awarding the Club’s Youth of the Year winner with a four-year scholarship to attend the university. We are incredibly grateful for their partnership, and would like to thank them along with National Exchange Bank & Trust and the Fond du Lac Family YMCA for helping us recognize our award winners! Last but certainly not least, HUGE THANKS to our event sponsors, Grande Cheese and Fox Valley Savings Bank for continuing to support our mission and vision for youth in the Fond du Lac community!
