Boys & Girls Club President Sally Rudloff, Site Director Marc Morales, Mayor Beverly Johnson and a host of local youth commemorate National Boys & Girls Club Week on March 16 at City Hall.

The Boys & Girls Club of Alameda celebrated National Boys & Girls Club Week a little early on March 16 when the City Council presented a proclamation to youths who attend the club and the club’s site director, Marc Morales. “Boys & Girls Clubs are increasingly playing a vital role in many young people’s lives,” Morales said. “In today’s economic climate, we offer a positive place for kids whose parents are seeking an economical, safe and enriching environment for their children.” The club has just broken ground on a new facility and is still actively fundraising for programs there.
