The club continues its renovation
If you have driven down Buena Vista Street
lately, you may have noticed our new sign, which
is located at the front of our building in a
flower bed planted by Turner Broadcasting
employees. Our new sign was a gift from Jack
ONeill, Vice President of Faculties for
NBC/Universal. The sign gives the club greater
sense of pride in their club. We are also in the
process of finishing i our remodeling program
utilizing CDBG
funds. Most recently the club received new games
room doors, new flooring, a new motorized fence
and a new P.A. system and phone system. Our next
job involves rebuilding our existing deck and
creating a new front office area. If you haven't
been by the club lately, please stop by and see
all of the great changes for yourself.

As we enter in to the busy holiday season let us
all take time to remember what it means to give.
Regardless of our religion or have we celebrate
the holidays, the most important thing to
remember is that the true gift for the holidays,
is to give of yourself. Whether it be through
volunteering friendship, family, etc and we at
the Boys and Girls Club are extremely grateful to
all of you that have given to the youth in our
community. Happy Holidays! Shanna Vaughan

Volunteers spent all morning and afternoon
digging out old bushes and replacing them with
flowers. Club members have taken a likening in
the new gardens and take turns watering and
cleaning around the garden.
In September 2005, Turner Broadcasting approached
the club wanting to work on a club project. The
project turned out to be a Garden Project.
Volunteers from Cartoon Network, TNT, TBS, and
CNN stopped by and planted flowers and put up
white picket fences at the club.
