Westborough – The Westborough Civic Club recently met to elect the club's Executive Committee for 2014/15. The elected officers for the year are Adam Boyce, president; Steve Hart, vice president; Prentice Gove, treasurer; and Walter Leslie, secretary. President Emeritus is retiring president and long-serving member, Bill Coveney.
The club is a registered charitable organization established in 1975 for the sole purpose of benefiting the Town of Westborough and its residents. It has long had a tradition of ensuring that part of the proceeds raised from annual fundraising go to young people who espouse the club's mission.
This year, the club announced that, in addition to five scholarships of $1,000 each to selected graduating students from Westborough High School, they will offer a similar award to a student from Westborough graduating from Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School.
Awards go to individuals demonstrating an interest in civic affairs and displaying good citizenship and a record of community service?and fellowship in the community as demonstrated during their high school career. Candidates will be nominated by their respective school nominating committees.
