Family Services Celebrates 120 years!

     On Thursday, June 23rd, Family Services held its 120th Anniversary Celebration at the America's Packard Museum in Dayton.  More than 180 friends and colleagues joined us for an evening of fine food, music and great friends to raise funds in support of the more than 12 different programs and services provided by Family Services. 

    Dr. and Mrs. Morris Brown were Honorary Chairs for the event that highlighted the many 

accomplishments of Family Services with an exhibit of historic archives and a video produced by Buch TV GUY (Jim Bucher).  Guest speaker, Dr.  Allan B. Spetter, Professor of History, Retired from WSU, shared the history of social work and interesting facts about Dayton dating back to 1896. 

    Elite Catering provided a wonderful dinner, Central Perc donated our celebration cake, and Ben & Jerry's brought their ice cream wagon!  The Jim Burns Trio entertained us with jazz, and our live auction included a beautiful glass piece created by James Michael, a painting by Bing Davis, and jewelry donated by Weber Jewelers.
