Citizen of the Year

A 70-year resident of Three Rivers has been selected as the recipient of the 2014 “Bruce C. Snook Citizen of the Year.” The honor is bestowed by the Three Rivers Lions Club.

Jerry Wright, who was 8-years-old when his family moved to Three Rivers, was named the Citizen of the Year, which is newly named this honor in honor the late Bruce Snook, a longtime Lion and community advocate who passed away last August.

Wright will be recognized during a public banquet April 22 at Belle Époque.

A 1953 graduate of Three Rivers High School in 1953, Wright subsequently opened the Wright Dance Studio and owned four publishing-related businesses.

In 2006, he published the Three Rivers Historical Scrapbook, and played a major role in last year’s film, The Current, which showcased the life of Three Rivers.

Tickets for the banquet, priced at $20 per person, will go on sale in late March at Ridgeway Floral and remain on sale through April 15.
