The Hope Center Appreciation Banquet was held April 7, at the Second Baptist Church.
The dinner is sponsored each year by the Bowling Green Ministerial Association to celebrate and honor the volunteers and the board of the Hope Center.
The women of Second Baptist provided a wonderful meal, and entertainment was provided by Ron Turner and Marion Branstetter.
This year was the beginning year of the Hope Center Bud Henderson Memorial Volunteer Award. Bud Henderson was a long time faithful volunteer who showed the spirit of volunteerism to all. Bud passed away this year. It was decided to do an award in his memory. The 2014 Volunteer of the Year was Tommy Branstetter.
