Kelly Sandland of Vermillion is endeavoring to start a Boys and Girls Club of America in Vermillion.
For 140 years, Boys and Girls Clubs have been impacting young people by reducing delinquency, assisting in raising academic performance and providing a safe, supervised place to be. Boys and Girls Club of America is a non-profit organization that provides many opportunities and support to young people. Time spent at local Clubs is not wasted and makes "hanging out" meaningful. Boys and Girls Clubs aid in developing social skills and can meet diverse needs of, not only the individual, but also the community. Boys and Girls Club creates employment and volunteer opportunities.
She is asking area residents to help fill a critical need and invest in Vermillion's future. Ways to show you are is to: Contribute funds; Serve as a board leader; Enlist a Club member.
Another way is to attend an informational meeting at 5 p.m. June 21 at City Hall in the large conference room. Please attend and learn more about this fantastic opportunity for Vermillion's youth.
