For the first time, the Growth Alliance Banquet will be held online, via Facebook, on the West Point Life page. As it is virtually impossible to have a banquet event during a pandemic, so Lisa Klutts, director of the Growth Alliance, wanted to have the next best thing - a virtual banquet to honor those who make West Point what it is for everyone. The event is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, on the West Point Life page on Facebook.
"I know people everywhere were looking forward to 2021," Klutts said. "The previous year was hard on everyone. Be it financially, mentally, spiritually, 2020 took its toll on all of us. We are having to come up with creative ways to not simply cancel everything."
