Local Club Honors Youth & Volunteer Members

A local club is honored some young community members Thursday Night for their good choices.

The Boys and Girls Club held their annual awards banquet at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Endicott to honor youth members as well as volunteers and staff. Employees of the club say that it's a good time to honor the award recipients by highlighting the achievements and the responsible decisions they've made which sometimes is no small task.

Director of Youth Development at The Boys & Girls Club, Amy Alexander said, "It gives them a boost of confidence. It gives them some encouragement to continue doing what they're doing. It reinforces that they've done an outstanding job and that we care. As far as our volunteers, it's very similar, it's a way to say thank you."

Alexander says that they wouldn't be able to do the work they do without volunteers and staff members.
