Congratulations to our July Member of the Month Ethan. Ethan started at the Boys & Girls Club this summer because he heard about the fun things we do and couldn’t wait to start coming. He said the fun things he heard about are definitely true! He has made new friends this summer and LOVES to use the computers for our coding program. He said the Club has helped him become better at coding and pass the levels of his game. He loved animal week this summer because we got to go to the zoo and the humane society brought in his favorite animal which is a cat! He is hoping once his little siblings are older he can get one! Well Done Ethan!
