Join us on Thursday January 12, 2017 at Millwood Station Banquet Hall for our second annual celebration of our community stars, those individuals who help to light up our community. This year we will honor Barry Lee and Mary Bowser.

About Barry Lee and Mary Bowser

For more than 30 years Barry Lee has invited us all to be part of his extended family on the WINC Wake-Up Show on 92.5 WINC-FM. There, in 1986, he started the Chain of Checks, the annual campaign that has given back more than $1.2 million to community nonprofits. Barry’s wife, Mary Bowser, is an educator and passionate advocate for literacy. She currently serves as President of the Literacy Volunteers Winchester Area board. Together they make our community better each and every day. We are planning an evening to celebrate their accomplishments and to continue to grow the future of the CFNSV and our community.  Proceeds from the evening’s festivities will support the CFNSV Annual Campaign.
