They impressed us with their poise, they infected us with their laughter, and amazed us with their vision for the Great Future that lies ahead for them. The members of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs of Greensboro were the highlight of the Great Futures Stakeholders Reception, held on April 30, 2015 at The Empire Room.
Several club members like Saquan Rush, got up before the crowd of more than 100 and spoke about how The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club has set them up for a Great Future.
Club members hosted booths at the event and talked with guests about the programs that are going on at The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro. Programs like the First Lego League where club members build Lego creations for competitions.
They proudly displayed the artwork they’ve been working on through the DRL Toons program. It’s a computer art program where the kids make their own drawings, scan it into the computer, and then color it on the computer.
We heard the hard work pay off for the club members who have been learning to play violin for the past two years. It's a program the Boys & Girls Club runs with the help of UNCG’s School of Music. This is just one of several music programs going on at the Boys & Girls Club.
It was a fantastic night where the club members shined. We are incredibly proud to call each and every one of them a Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club Member.
