“Everything about the Boys and Girls Club is good. It’s good people taking care of young people. It’s a blessing.”
-Ed Nynas, board member
“All the places to go and things to do – makes it good. And you can play with your friends because they come here, too.”

I come every day. I like the gym – basketball, jump roping and four square. I read with Josh. He reads some and I read some.
-Jared, 1st grade
You can play a whole bunch of games in the games room – I usually play a game with my friends.

My three kids love the Club because it’s a fun place to hang out, a place where they feel safe and accepted.
