Lucy Anne Boddie Brewer, the namesake of this society, exemplified a love of family, children, and those who needed her the most.
She gave her time, her talents, and her treasures to the less fortunate in the Rocky Mount area. Lucy Ann was a fun loving board member who loved being around people. Her commitment to the Rocky Mount Club was shown through her willingness to be an advocate for the young people the organization served. Her spirit and enthusiasm was contagious. In 1995 to commemorate her work with the organization the Board of Directors voted unanimously to honor her by renaming the Rocky Mount Club in her honor.
Initiated by Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region in 2016, The Lucy Ann Boddie Brewer Society encourages and promotes individual giving to the Boys & Girls Clubs in the Twin Counties. The society offers local recognition for individuals who demonstrate a deep commitment to the children of their community by providing vital funds to their local Clubs.
