The 2019 Jubilee Gala
Jubilee’s rising Executive Director, Steve Keener, with Jubilee’s retiring Executive Director, Tim Wiens.
After finishing his speech, thanking individuals Jubilee serves, their families, staff, elected officials, sponsors, and donors for helping him make Jubilee what it is today, Jubilee Executive Director Tim Wiens tearfully looked out to the crowd as he received a stand-ing ovation for his 40 years of leadership at Jubilee. Retiring on June 30, 2019, Tim was instrumental in growing Jubilee from three staff members and seven individuals to over 270 staff and 140 served indi-viduals. Throughout the last year, Jubilee has showered Tim with various events such as a Montgomery County Delegation Reception, the Client Council Retirement Party, and a reception with Montgom-ery County Executive Isiah Leggett. However, what better way to celebrate 40 years of providing community-living supports and op-portunities for adults with intellectual and other developmental disa-bilities in Montgomery County than to honor Tim at Jubilee’s most anticipated event, the Jubilee Gala.
