“We thank you for what you do for our community,” said Joanna Michelin, chairwoman of the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona board of directors. “You do incredible work every day for those who are the least, the lost and the little.”
Michelin’s comments concluded an hour-long presentation ceremony that awarded seven grants totalling $200,000 to nonprofit agencies providing health and social services in the community.
“You know, it’s just marvelous for us on the Legacy Foundation to hear your stories about what it is you do and what you plan to do with these funds. It just motivates us and makes us feel really good about what it is we do,” said Margaret Hepburn, the organization’s chief executive officer. “Thank you all for what you do in the community, you work hard and you’re invaluable.”
This year, the club added a caroling concert into the mix. Members that were involved in this event practiced for weeks. They were able to show all their hard work to their family and friends. Sunny Fichtl and Millie MacGregor donated their time to help out with teaching the members songs and perfecting their vocals.
Sierra Vista’s Boys & Girls Club members attended the annual State Keystone Conference held at Camp Sky-Y in Prescott on Nov. 4-6. It was a chance for teens to collaborate with fellow club members from 30 Boys & Girls Clubs across the state.
The Keystone Club is a unique leadership development experience that provides opportunities for members ages 14 to 18 to participate in activities in four focus areas: academic success, teen outreach, career preparation and community service.

The Youth of the Year program honors our nation’s most awe-inspiring young people on their path to great futures and encourages all kids to lead, succeed and inspire. As the new Youth of the Year for Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista, 14-year-old Bianca was recognized for her leadership, service, academic excellence and dedication to live a healthy lifestyle.
From gearheads taking a close look under the hood of the dozens of classic models, to casual car enthusiasts looking at the newest Mustang and Corvette models, there was something for everyone at the event, which, if previous years are any indication, is expected to raise well over $10,000 for the Sierra Vista Boys and Girls Club.
