Over 200 youth at "Boys and Girls Clubs Day for Kids" dance

The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Chattahoochee Valley joined other clubs across the nation in celebrating "Boys and Girls Clubs Day for Kids."

More than 200 youth participated In a dance at the North Columbus branch on Sept. 14.

The results of a summer survey of club members from across the nation found that 78 percent of the kids feel they spend enough meaningful time with their parents but that 39 percent want their parents to work less. Of those surveyed, 68 percent said their parents are their most important role model.

"We created Boys and Girls Clubs Day for Kids, to foster stronger relationships between adults and children by educating them on the importance and value of spending meaningful time together," said Jim Wink, CEO for the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Chattahoochee Valley.
