Boys & Girls Clubs are changing lives
Last Tuesday, I attended the Boys and Girls Club annual Youth of the Year event.

What a special event it was!

The Boys and Girls Club really works hard to make the Youth of the Year finalists feel like stars. They get the red carpet treatment all the way.

And they should.

These youth have all come a long way. And it’s all because of the Boys and Girls Club.

I’ve talked about the Boys and Girls Club several times before in this space. And I’ll continue to say it over and over again. We are so fortunate to have these clubs in our area.

They truly are special places for our youth to go. And they make an impact on the youth that attend.

This year’s finalists all had amazing stories to tell. I am thankful that I am not one of the judges that has to select the winner of this competition. I don’t know how the judges narrowed it down this year.

Becoming a mother has certainly changed the way I handle these events. I used to be able to go to these and take photos and notes and not let the emotions of it affect me. But not anymore.

It was very hard for me to not be affected by the stories that were told last Tuesday night.

All four stories were different in some way. But all the teen’s stories had the same ending; the Boys and Girls Club changed their life.

Just hearing those words should make people understand how significant the Boys and Girls Club is to our communities.

They make a difference and they are changing lives, not only in our community but around the world.
