ALUMNI & FRIENDS CLUB
Be A Member For Life & Stay Involved With The Club By REMEMBERING, RECONNECTING & RE-ENGAGING
It is the mission of the Alumni & Friends Club to provide a meaningful opportunity for all Club Alumni to give back to the Club, and to enable past members/parents, staff and volunteers to have a positive impact on the future of the Club while continuing to empower all young people, especially those who need us most.
Honoring the Past
Since the organization’s inception in 1956, thousands of lives have been positively enhanced at Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington. Establishing the Alumni & Friends Club gives a familiar home for those who have been a part of the Club’s movement over the past 60+ years. A unique aspect to the Alumni & Friends Club is that membership is open to all affiliations within the Club – meaning Volunteers, Board/ECY/Auxiliary Members, Staff and former Club Members/Parents are all welcomed to join the Alumni & Friends Club!
Preparing the Future
Joining the Alumni & Friends Club means you have a vested interest to ensure the sustainable future of the Club. It is the responsibility of Alumni & Friends Club Members to symbolically “Pass the Torch” to the next generation of Club enthusiasts by giving back – not just financially, but by serving as a role model for current Club Members. No matter your profession today, we are all connected to the Club in some fashion or another. Joining the Alumni & Friends Club and passing the torch is the true measure of giving back to something greater than yourself.
