National Boys & Girls Club Week - A Success

Since 1941, the Boys & Girls Club Movement has celebrated National Boys & Girls Club Week by recognizing the invaluable service Clubs bring to communities and sharing how great futures start at Boys & Girls Clubs. Check out the ways we were able to celebrate April 8-12 below! 
 
 
 
 
MONDAY

Mayor Lovely Warren helped us officially recognize Boys & Girls Club Week by signing a proclamation declaring it to be so!

Our Club also said a well-deserved "thank you" to our Youth Development Professionals with a lunch catered by Sakura Home Restaurant.
 
 
 
 
TUESDAY

Tuesday's theme highlighted some of the ways that Clubs help to create safer neighborhoods.

In an effort to stand up against bullying, we encouraged our Club members to sign anti-bullying pledges, whereby they commit to being an upstander who takes action against abuse and proactively shows respect. 
 
 
 
 
WEDNESDAY

Our friends at Foodlink paid us a visit for Health & Wellness Wednesday! Club members played an interactive game to get their bodies moving while jogging their brains about all the fruits & veggies in the rainbow. 

Members also learned how to make a healthy, delicious smoothie with no added sugar! See the news clip
 
 
 
 
THURSDAY

The Club hosted an Open House on Thursday, where anyone new to the Club could come for a tour by one of our teens, enjoy snacks, and enter a bike raffle.

Councilman Malik Evans stopped by to hear from Rochester’s youth on pressing issues, and for our teens to experience the importance of citizen participation.
 
 
 
 
FRIDAY

As a final way to celebrate all the festivities of the week, Club members enjoyed popcorn from continual Club supporter, Popcorn Charlie's.

The company provided us with different flavors of popcorn, including movie, pizza, and bacon & cheese! 
 
 
 
 
 
Jeadan's World: Emerging Artist Opening

Jaedan’s love for the arts began at the age of 4, starting with music. Because Jaedan was nonverbal, he would use beats and sounds to communicate.

As he began to grow, so did his talent. He started drawing the Feelings Chart, in order to communicate with his family how he felt. Jaedan would put great detail in the expressions, and his family realized he had an extraordinary gift, despite - or thanks to - his autism disorder.

When several of our Club members had an art show at Imprintable Solutions, Ink over the last few months, 11-year-old Jaedan was excited and encouraged to see his work was not only well-received, but selling fast. He now hopes to create an artistic brand, all of his own.

Join us for his art gallery opening on First Friday and help him support his dream of becoming a successful artist. Not only will you be able to purchase his art directly, but you also have the chance to buy a t-shirt with your choice of his art printed on the spot!

May 3 from 5 - 9 pm
Imprintable Solutions, Ink
100 College Avenue, Suite 130
