EVENT HISTORY: Following the by-laws requirement for The Kennedy Center as a 501 (c) (3) agency, an Annual Meeting has been held by the organization since 1951. Each year, along with the business meeting, awards are presented to Kennedy Center individuals who have shown outstanding personal achievements; volunteers and local businesses who have shown exemplary support to individuals with disabilities and the agency; and to staff who have gone above and beyond their responsibilities and made a significant impact to either the individuals we serve or to the agency. It is a joyful and uplifting event that inspires everyone that attends.
