Recognition

Milton Family Community Center wouldn’t be where it is today if it were not for the support of many great people. These great people are not always visible to others as many times their generous contributions are done quietly and humbly. These hard-working individuals are our heroes! They give us inspiration and encouragement; even though no recognition is requested of them, we do so anyway to express our gratitude and appreciation for their dedication and support of the Milton Family Community Center.

Val O’Reilly Award
In honor of one of our heroes, Valerie O’Reilly, the Milton Family Community Center created the Val O’Reilly Award to recognize every year one of its community members for their unwavering commitment and dedication to improving the lives of children and families at the Milton Family Community Center. Val served on the Board of Directors from 1996 to 2004. During her time on the MFCC Board she avidly advocated for high quality programs for children and families. She modeled for the rest of us the importance of persistence in making sure important issues that affect children and families are addressed and for being a positive voice for others who are not able to have their own voice heard. It is in her honor that we carry on the tradition of serving our community with honor and pride.

Michael W. Lane Quest for Excellence Community Service Award

It is with great leadership that great organizations are formed and sustained. In 2003 Michael Lane joined the Milton Family Community Center Board of Directors. Mike brought with him an energy and passion that was unbelievably contagious and soon took on the position of Board President. Mike then proceeded to guide the MFCC Board and Staff through what he fondly called a “quest for excellence.” Mike inspired us all to look deep within ourselves and find the strengths that we already had and to use those strengths to move the Milton Family Community Center forward toward a future that at one time we would only dare to dream about. It is in his honor that we created the Michael W. Lane Quest of Excellence Community Service Award. This award recognizes an individual who strives for excellence, exhibits exceptional leadership, and is committed to promoting the positive growth and overall vision of the Milton Family Community Center.
