Please remember Mark and his family during this difficult time.

Tom Leitch, Senior Vice President for Wells Fargo Insurance Services in Greensboro announced to Club staff recently that he will be retiring at the end of this year.  Tom met with the Club last week and said, “I cherish the relationship that we have enjoyed and I will miss the opportunity to work with you but I know that Ed Conder will work hard to meet and exceed your service expectations.”  He also said, “Thanks again to all of you for giving me the opportunity to learn about the Cherokee Boys Club and work with you.  You have a great team and I look forward to following your progress.”  Wells Fargo has provided our insurance coverage for several years.  We appreciate Tom’s dedication to the Boys Club, his excellent provision of service and his friendship.  Best of luck and good wishes to Tom on his retirement.
