The Madison-Danville Jaycees have paid tribute to the hit television show Glee.
In late June, they held a concert showcasing many shows from the Fox show. The show featured all local talent. Local Chapter President, Terry Bartley, said he believes this makes it special.
“When I was in high school, I always participated in S.T.A.G.E., but there really wasn’t anywhere for adults to perform,” Bartley said, “I feel like this show is a great way to feature local talents and raise money for a great cause.”
The cause Bartley is referring to is the Lifehouse/HERO House, which is an effort to bring a sober living home to the Boone County area. Richie Schultz, a local minster heading the effort, said that he is thankful groups like the Jaycees are supportive of his work.
“It was exciting to have the group organization step out to support the sober living homes efforts,” Schultz said, “we have seen a positive impact in the state and are hopeful that as we introduce a home in our community we too can see a positive change.”
Schultz said he is happy to see positive additions to the Madison-Danville area. He is not only looking forward to a future sober living home, but also to see more from the performers in the Tribute to Glee.
“The Glee performance was great,” Schultz said, “I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of talent in this area.”
The Madison-Danville Jaycees have been creating an impact in Boone County since the 1980s. The are composed of active citizens between the ages of 18 and 40.
