Boys and Girls Club of So­cial Cir­cle

The Covington News - - Opinion -

So­cial Cir­cle’s City Coun­cil made a wise de­ci­sion this past week when they agreed unan­i­mously to en­ter into a $6,000 ser­vice agree­ment with the Boys and Girls Club. We see this action as the first step in a long-time com­mit­ment to the chil­dren of So­cial Cir­cle

Thethree-and-half-year-old club has al­ready grown to a mem­ber­ship of 220 chil­dren in the So­cial Cir­cle area.

Boys and Girls Club of Amer­ica has served the youth of this coun­try proudly for 102 years.

Since its beginning, hun­dreds of thou­sands of our na­tion’s chil­dren have re­ceived the ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing to be­come suc­cess­ful busi­ness­men, com­mu­nity ad­vo­cates and gov­ern­ment leaders.

The Boys and Girls Club turns no one away if they can­not pay the mod­est dues, thanks to do­na­tions from busi­nesses and com­mu­nity mem­bers, schol­ar­ships are pro­vided.

So­cial Cir­cle’s club is just beginning to spread its wings, and its value to the com­mu­nity will in­crease in time.

The in­vest­ment by the city fathers and moth­ers of So­cial Cir­cle in­sures there will be a safe place for the chil­dren of their com­mu­nity to learn and grow.

A Boys and Girls Club is truly more than a build­ing; it is a pos­i­tive place where chil­dren can be safe, have fun and to learn con­cepts they will carry into adult­hood.

If you would like more in­for­ma­tion or would like to do­nate to the Boys and Girls Club of So­cial Cir­cle call (770) 464-0069.
