The third annual Dale Hague Memorial HUB Dinner will kick off at 5 p.m. Friday evening at the HUB Youth Center at 118 N. Walnut.
“Food will be served and entertainment provided as long as there are patrons enjoying it,” co-founder Doe Ann Hague said.
Dale and Doe Ann Hague started the HUB as a non-profit youth organization in 2006. Their hope was to create a safe place for young people to meet their friends, socialize, study, and receive healthy mentoring.
Dale Hague died unexpectedly in May of 2011.
The annual dinner is an expression of appreciation to the community for the financial support that has helped to keep the HUB open through Dale’s death, the center’s reorganization, and a burglary that meant the loss of computers, televisions, other electronic equipment and games, and cash.
“We have been truly grateful for the many individuals and businesses who have stepped up to support us and helped us keep the doors open,” Doe Ann Hague said. “We hope everyone will come out and enjoy this appreciation dinner with us.”
Tables will be set up in the HUB and outside on the sidewalk. A menu of sloppy joes, chips, brownie, tea or lemonade will be served.
Aaron Waddell will provide musical entertainment during the evening and the HUB will be open to people who wish to see the youth center.
There is no charge for the meal, but donation jars will be available if those in attendance wish to contribute to the HUB.
