Boys & Girls Club to hold ‘ Lights on Afterschool’ open house Oct. 25
The Three Rivers Boys & Girls Club after-school program will sponsor a ‘Lights on Afterschool’ open house on Thursday, Oct. 25, from 3-6 p.m. at the Gilmer County Civic Center, 1559 S. Main St., in Ellijay.
The open house will be one of more than 8,000 such events during the annual nationwide celebration of programs in the Afterschool Alliance.
“The event is to call for expanding after-school opportunities so every child who needs a program has access to one, and showcase the benefits of after-school programs, including inspiring children to learn, keeping them safe in the hours when juvenile crime peaks and providing relief to working families,” a release states.
The event will spotlight the range of programming at the Three Rivers Club, including academic support, physical fitness, the arts, building strong communities and will feature community partners such as Master Gardeners and 4-H.
