Youth of the Year & Member of the Month
Each month the Club’s Staff selects a youth to represent the Club as the Member of the Month. The Member of the Month is not a competition, but rather a recognition of a youth who personifies the Club experience and serves as a positive example to his/her peers. Annually the Club’ s Staff selects one member to represent the Club as the Youth of the Year. The Youth of the Year is recognized locally at the Club, and at a dinner with all the Youth of the Year recipients from every Club in Massachusetts.
