Savage Boys and Girls Club: SBGC News
Savage Boys & Girls Club Open Meeting on September 19, 2017, at 7 p.m., Pavilion at Savage Park
Savage Boys and Girls Club Family,
As many of you know, Savage Boys and Girls Club has been a pillar of this community for over 30 years. The programs offered by the Club has giving our youth a safe and fun environment to participate in athletic competition, learn life lessons and create long lasting friendships. Many of our Alumni look back at their time at Savage with fond memories and a few have even enrolled their children in the program.
Unfortunately, over the past few years, the program has fallen on hard times. Competing organizations have cut into our membership forcing SBGC to reduce or cancel sports that were originally the staple of our club. With low enrollment and even lower parental volunteers it has become increasingly harder to compete against other programs which are better funded and have more volunteer resources. However, there is some good news. The communities around Savage Park are growing by leaps and bounds. With the construction of new homes slated in the 5-10 years, SBGC will be in position to capture that market share and rebuild the club to the levels it enjoyed just 10 years ago. For this to happen, the club desperately needs an infusion of energized parents and volunteers at all levels to get involved and rebuild a once proud program.
On September 19, 2017 at the pavilion at Savage Park at 7pm there will be an open meeting to identify individuals who would be interested in leading SBGC into the future. All board member positions are open, however, there is a need for President, Treasurer and several commissionerships. Over the past 10 years, myself and others have served in various rolls to keep the program running. Now it's time for a new batch of people to get involved and bring new energy and ideas to Savage Boys and Girls club. The alternative would mean the permanent closure of Savage Boys and Girls Club.
I hope you all would consider getting involved with this amazing program. I would love to see SBGC continue for the next 30 years.
If you have any questions or would like to talk to me individually about any board positions, please send me an email and we can discuss it in more detail.
