LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse added two new members to their Wall of Fame on Friday evening.
The Boys & Girls Club inducted Mary Jo Werner and Bob Allen into the Wall of Fame at the 29th Annual Wall of Fame Recognition Banquet at the Waterfront Cargill Room.
Allen, who has served on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club for the past 25 years, said he felt “honored”, but his colleagues deserve more credit for their hard work as well.
“It is very humbling and I’ve always thought that was so cliche to say. But it really is. Once they tell you that you are in, when you know how many people help make this work, to single someone out doesn’t seem fair so it is really an honor. It’s a huge honor,” Allen said.
Werner, who has volunteered at Boys & Girls Clubs in Greater La Crosse for the past 20 years, said she feels proud to be a key part of a “great organization”.
“It is very humbling. I was very surprised when I got that call. It’s an awesome organization, and I’m very honored,” Werner said.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse also honored Bob Hubbard with the Adult & Youth Award, Johnny Brevik and Garrett Jerue with the Distinguished Service Awards, John Thorsen with the President’s Award, and Trust Point with the Corporate Award.
