Lauderdale County Community Development Clubs Host Awards Banquet

Meridian, Miss. The Lauderdale County Community Development Clubs hosted its annual awards banquet Monday night.

Seven clubs from across Lauderdale County help out those in need with community service projects. The 2013 woman of the year is Shirley Hutcherson of the Suqualena Club. The man of the year is her husband, Lloyd Hutcherson of Suqualena. These two individuals are part of the many people who serve this area.

"We serve the sick and shut-in. We take people to doctors when they need it. Our big event is roadside cleanup. We try to do that weekly," said Vistan Allen, president of the Community Development Club Council.

The Collinsville Community Development Club earned the outstanding club of the year and a three hundred dollar check.
