     Club staff who coordinated the recent golf tournament to benefit the Children’s Home, Bill Taylor Scholarship Endowment and Cherokee Youth Center would like to extend thanks to Lumpy Lambert, former Family Services Board Member and Club Advisory Committee Member, for his assistance with the recent golf tournament.  Lumpy was very diligent in providing contact information for sponsorships and was also very helpful in coordinating scheduling information for our out-of-town guests and local Harrah’s staff who participated in the tournament.

     The Cherokee Boys Club Board of Directors consists of nine members.  Five of these members are elected every two years from Boys Club members, two outside business members are appointed from the elected Board, one member is appointed by Tribal Council and one representative is elected from the Cherokee Central School’s student body to represent the School.  The current Board will serve through September 30, 2012.  The Board consists of:
