Boyd honored by Woman's Club

The Woman's Club of Laguna Beach will honor former mayor and current councilman Kelly Boyd during its annual luncheon March 21.

Boyd, who previously organized a golf tournament to raise funds for Laguna Beach High School's golf teams, asked that proceeds from the luncheon benefit the sport. 

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at http://www.wclb.org by Monday.

"Kelly Boyd has a great passion for golf and desire to see the game grow among our youth in Laguna," Coach Scott Finn said in a news release. "His support of our high school program has directly benefited our players and the success they have achieved."

Boyd, who underwent a stem cell transplant late last year to battle multiple myeloma, a blood cell cancer, said he will seek reelection in November.

"As long as my health stays as it is now, I am planning on running," Boyd said in the release. "I really enjoy working for the citizens of Laguna Beach. I am a fourth-generation Lagunian and I'm proud to serve the community that I love."

Thurston Middle School was named for Boyd's grandmother, Marie Thurston, who taught in the Laguna schools and became principal of Laguna Beach Grade School in 1913.  Marie Thurston was also a member of the woman's club when it was formed in 1922, according to the release.

The luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. at 286 St. Ann's Drive.
