Installation and Awards Banquet

The Arc of Wilson County's welcomed two new board members on August 23rd. They are Tracy Wellington with Chick-fil-A of Wilson, and Courtney Gay with BB&T. They will be awesome additions to our board.
We also awarded the following awards:
Volunteer of the Year - The Wilson Police Department for the help with our annual Easter Egg Hunt and many other activities throughout the community.
Organization of the Year - City of Wilson Parks and Recreation Department and The SPOT - Wilson Youth United. Both of these groups donate their facilities and space to The Arc to use throughout the year for our many quality programs.
Love Award - Tammy Hobbs with the Wilson Police Department. Each year Mrs. Hobbs makes nearly 200 cupcakes all by herself for our annual Easter Egg Hunt and pays for the supplies out of her own pocket. This is an act of true kindness and we appreciate her love for our children.
10 Years of Service - Mrs. Lillie Dunican was recognized for 10 years of service and loyalty to The Arc of Wilson County and Camp Sunshine. This past summer of 2016 will be her last official year as a staff member.
