Appreciation was the key word at this event.
Appreciation for efforts to help disabled people. Appreciation for giving young people a chance to work toward a good future. Appreciation for making healthy lifestyles available to residents.
The Service Club of Andover's annual annual Evening of Appreciation featured recognition and gifts to organizations that help a variety of people in the community.
Representatives of those organizations spoke about their efforts to support people with developmental disabilities and young people in the community.
The event was held recently at the Andover Inn on the campus of Phillips Academy.
