Neighborhood Service Center Gala Cancelled
April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
CANCELLED The Neighborhood Service Center (NSC), Inc., will mark 50 years of service in Talbot County with a celebration dinner at The Milestone on Saturday, April 25 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Established in 1969, NSC is a non-profit Community Action Agency that provides services and assistance to low-income families, individuals and elderly residents in Talbot County. As an offshoot of the Tri County Community Action Agency, the NSC developed into a comprehensive non-profit organization with multiple programs designed to provide hope, stability and the tools to achieve self-sufficiency to hundreds of families in Talbot County.
According to NSC Board chairman, Trevor Newcomb, the event will celebrate NSC’s progress over the past five decades and also honor individuals in the community who have made outstanding contributions of their time, energy and talents to the advancement of the organization’s mission of addressing and eradicating poverty in Talbot County. The honorees are: past Talbot County Council President Herbert Andrew (posthumously, Della Andrew accepting); Dorothy W. Black (posthumously, Walter W. Black accepting); Lorraine Claggett; Gregory Webb; and the United Fund of Talbot County. In addition, Walter Chase will receive special recognition.
The event also will feature Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio, Maryland’s Secretary of Natural Resources and former member of the Maryland House of Delegates (District 37B), as keynote speaker.
“The Board agreed that celebrating NSC’s 50 years of ‘changing lives, one household at a time’ was a perfect occasion to honor and thank those who have made such amazing contributions to our organization, helping us to meet the needs of individuals and families in our midst struggling against poverty, hunger and homelessness,” explains Trevor. “In addition to the keynote address and the awards program, the event will include cocktails, dinner and a silent auction. We hope that our community partners and their friends and families, as well as those of our honorees, will join us in this important celebration to honor our past and celebrate our future.”
