On September 1, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutherford County celebrated its 30 –year birthday with a blow-out party. The party was held at the Boys & Girls Club on 820 Jones Blvd. Plenty of activities for the whole family included music, games, face painting, inflatables, popcorn, cotton candy, and hot dogs.
The Boys & Girls Club has been a positive influence in our community for 30 years and that was a great reason for everyone to celebrate. The Birthday Bash was free to the whole community and was a great way to spend a Thursday evening with the family.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutherford County (BGCRC) has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. BGCRC enriches the lives of girls and boys that other agencies fail to reach. BGCRC is dedicated to ensuring that our community’s young people, who are most in need of our help, have greater access to quality programs and services that provide promise, hope and opportunities to ensure that they may become productive adults. Since 1986, they have provided children with a positive place to go, results-oriented programming and a professional staff to guide them. BGCRC serves over 3,000 young people daily through its clubs, teen center and outreach programs. They operate two clubs and two teen centers.
A private, nonprofit organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutherford County improves young lives as well as the communities that surround and support us. The organization relies upon private, corporate, individual, and United Way funding to accomplish its mission.
