Joyce Young Honored at 14th Annual Founders Event

This year’s guest of honor was celebrated on Sept 27th not just for her many years of community service, but also because it was her (and her daughter Mary’s) birthday! It was a special evening with speeches from Joyce’s daughters Margaret and Mary Young and Shirley Spelman, Township Administrator Jessie Lightle, and longtime friend David Ponitz. Joyce was presented with a framed print of herself in her Americana regalia by CWF President Mike Bevis, and Mayor Brooks Compton made a pre-dinner presentation on behalf of the city. Richard Carr emceed the evening which was attended by 130 guests at The Golf Course at Yankee Trace.
