April is a busy month for the Boys and Girls Club. The Club was busy preparing for several
events, such as the Big Hearts Campaign, National Boys & Girls Club week, fundraising
through the annual Pancake Breakfast, and the annual BGCE Awards show, which rewards members for
their outstanding contributions to the club through various activities. In preparation for the award
show, staff took the time to consider members who consistently show CPRRS while at the club,
as well as exceed in different programs offered. We had the privilege of nominating members for
various awards that involve Triple Play activities. Among these awards was the Ginger Rink
Memorial Sports Attitude award, which recognizes a member who “embodies the spirit of
sportsmanship.” This year’s award was given to a well-deserving member. Alayna F. Alayna is
constantly proving to be a great role model, not only during active games, but throughout her
entire time at the Boys & Girls Club. What made this most memorable was that Alayna had
been recognized for her achievement in front of the entire club, at our weekly Monday meetings.
She received the award and shortly after asked for a hug and thanked us for the award. We are
happy to see that she knows she is appreciated!
