 The hum of golf carts and laughter could be heard at Lane Creek Golf Club recently, as community members celebrated the life of Charles W. Baldwin and helped raise funds for the Madison-Morgan County Boys & Girls Club. 

Opening.jpg

The Charles W. Baldwin Memorial Hope & Promise Golf Tournament helps to facilitate funds for the MMCBGC’s The First Tee program, which was launched last year thanks to last year’s successful fundraiser. 

This year the Club’s aim was to grow its golf program to provide an even wider reach for youth in the community. Twenty-two golf teams took to the Lane Creek Golf Club course for a modified scramble tournament to do just that – help the youth.

At the conclusion of the tournament a winning team was named, which was comprised of Ross Bradly, Alex Johnson, John Steer and Chris Hubbard.

“We are so grateful to every player and every sponsor who gave their time and treasures to our youth,” Karen Robertson, Senior Executive Director shared. “Our Club members had the opportunity to participate in this year’s tournament whether by volunteering or playing with a team. It’s incredible to see how our community continues to surround our youth to create bright futures.”

Robertson added she’s thrilled to see The First Tee program continue to grow at the Club.

“We always look for ways to incorporate fun while learning, and First Tee will give Club kids a new, engaging and competitive sport, while instilling skills, and maybe even a new hobby, that can be carried over into adulthood and perhaps a career,” she said.

Robertson said “in order for young people to become productive, caring and contributing adults, they must have exposure to life-changing activities and experiences that can help them develop and build good character.”

The girls spent the weekend participating in several different team building exercises and outdoor skill such as rope walking, log drills, canoeing and other activities that promote teamwork, leadership, and networking.  The girls also learned the basics of retiring a flag.  

 “I learned to do some things that I never knew before,” Aubrey Allen, WCBGC member shared. “It was so fun to learn new skills and meet so many new friends.”

Club Director Lynn E. Hill shared how impactful the event is for Club youth.

“This event held in north Georgia, was important for these girls of the Walton County Club because of the life lessons that were taught during the course of the event,” Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, shared. “The girls could take away lessons on the importance of teamwork, hard work, and understanding nature. I am so glad to know these virtues are included in a weekend field trip that they truly enjoyed.”

Walton County Boys & Girls Club celebrated four of its seniors graduating. Among the graduating seniors was Club Director Lynn E. Hill’s son, Jared. 

Jared has been a member of the WCBGC for 12 years and is excited to enter into the Club Alumni program. 

I have come to realize through the Boys & Girls Club that being an alumni now gives me the opportunity to be a spokesperson for the Club and what is called the Movement,” Jared shared. “The Boys & Girls Club has been everything for me. I have truly learned that ‘Great Futures really do start here.’”

hillson.jpg

For Lynn Hill he couldn’t be prouder of his son.

I am so proud of my son Jared! I have literally watched him maneuver through the Boys & Girls Club as a Club Member, and as a parent. I witnessed how youth can be nurtured through a program and the effects that positive energy can have on a child developing through watching my own son progress through the Movement,” he shard. “He is now an alumni, and I know that the afterschool program and summer Camp works for our kids who need us the most, because I was engaged in the process with him for his duration as a life-long member of the Boys & Girls Club.

Hill shared he’s thrilled to see where each WCBGC graduate goes in their future. 

“Each Club member knows that they have a home here at our Club,” he added.

Volunteering at PNBGC enriches community

Jim1.jpg
jim2.jpg

Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club volunteer Jim Borland sees the Club as a place to give back for a positive return in the lives of the youth. After retiring from 35 years of work, Jim was ready to volunteer with youth and he knew exactly where he wanted to give his time and treasures. 

“Seeing a difference in the kids who attend the Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club versus the kids who don’t attend really opens your eyes to the kind of difference that’s being made here at the Club,” Jim shared. “You can tell the Club is changing the lives of these youth daily.”

When asked about an impactful moment to choose from Borland shared how much he’s enjoyed helping during PNBGC Thursday Night Dinner Program. 

“Watching these youth enjoy each other’s company and have a good meal warms your heart,” he shared. 

Stacy McClendon, PNBGC Director, shared “Mr. Jim has done an amazing job of bringing new meal ideas that allow our youth to stay excited and engaged during our Thursday Dinners.”

“Our volunteers are so kind and humble; they love working with the Club members and it shows in these actions and behavior,” McClendon shared. “Jim is one of those volunteers. I believe it takes someone special to volunteer and spend time with our youth, to listen and share guidance.

Volunteering at the Club, for Jim, isn’t about what he will receive but “how much I can give.”

BGCNCG Board Chair shares his history in the Movement

June and Michael Tompkins at Walton County Boys & Girls Club’s Belles & Bowties Fundraiser.

June and Michael Tompkins at Walton County Boys & Girls Club’s Belles & Bowties Fundraiser.

Helping youth change their lives by providing hope and opportunity has been a forefront mission for Michael. Currently he advocates for the youth of North Central Georgia as the Board Chair of the Boys and Girls Club of North Central Georgia. His connection with the Movement began as an 11 year old when he walked through the blue doors in the Bronx of New York City. His family endured hardships along the way, but the club became a safe harbor for him and his five brothers.

“For a number of unavoidable reasons my family moved several times including a short period of being homeless,” Michael shared. “Despite our struggles we remained together.”

In school, Michael was often called a day dreamer. He frequently took trips on the subway to window shop on the other side of town. “The dream was to one day become a customer. I wanted to become somebody of substance.”

His first meaningful employment was at Standard Oil after graduating from high school. Although it was a rewarding position, it did not fit with his long term plan. His young engineering supervisor encouraged Michael to go to college. Eventually he resigned from the refinery which was a scary decision at age 20 with a wife and new baby girl.

Michael’s sense of urgency pushed him to a full time student and employment. The vision to become a successful business executive and give back to his community kept him on target.

After finishing his education at City University of New York with a degree in accounting and economics, he was employed as the Chief Financial Officer at the Jackie Robinson Residential Company. He was later recruited to the Calibre Companies in Atlanta and soon became the Managing Partner in Florida building, investing and managing apartments. He retired from TriBridge Residential as the Executive Managing Partner after 25 years developing an international real estate investment group.

Along the way, Michael remarried June, currently a BGC volunteer. Together they raised four kids. In addition, he served on several Boards including serving as a BGCA National Trustee. “I serve today for BGCNCG with a focus on our youth. I can relate to their hardships. My current dream is to make a lasting impact on the lives of our youth in the next generation.”

WCBGC Parent Involvement Highlight

Journey Clay has a wonderful family. A family who stays involved with the work that she and her older brother, Victor, does at the Boys & Girls Club.  She is shown displaying a piece of artwork that her and her mother did together, as the Future Georgia Educators also came and set up a time for parents and Club members to can enjoy.  Mrs. Brenda Clay, Journey’s mother, stated that she wanted everyone to see the good things that the Club is doing with the Club Members, and that she was so happy to be a part of it.   She doesn’t want to miss anything that gives the parents an opportunity to get involved.

Kamrynn Garner and Darien Lancaster are just two of several Club Members who have had parents come to the Club for a visit in participation of Club projects held in the Art Room. Mrs. Lancaster, center, supervises the production of flower pot decoration and flowers created by her son, Darien, provided by the Monroe Junior Service League of Monroe. Beside Kamrynn Garner, is Billy Lewis, Jr., who just finished a presentation with his mother on Autism Awareness Month, with a concluding activity of flower planting to show how members with autism and express and perceive things differently.

Creative Arts brings 'lights, camera, action' to Walton Club

Mama T at Work.jpg

For Tranteegus Allen ensuring youth have a bright future is a motto she lives out as the founder of Desflo, Inc – a nonprofit which helps invest in youth through the arts. 

Desflo, Inc..jpg

When Allen heard of the Walton Boys & Girls Club, she knew that a partnership had to be formed. And this is where the Creative Arts Project was born for Club youth. 

For over three months now Allen has been volunteering at WCBGC teaching the youth “how to create film projects through creative arts lenses.”

“This will successfully influence youth to gain knowledge in the specific area of film-making, which promotes literacy and positive youth development,” she shared. “The Creative Art Project is a program that encourages the imagination of original ideas and artistic work of talented youth, which also promotes literacy, self-awareness, self-expression and stage presence.”

Lynn E. Hill, the Club’s director, couldn’t be more thrilled about the new program at the Club. 

“I can see the impact that she is already making with the Club Members,” he said. “Her stage play experience and the promotion of self-awareness gives them something to look forward to. Her passion and love for youth launches her above the rest and our Club members benefit greatly from her leadership.”

For Allen this partnership is about caring for our future generations. 

“Dr. Seuss puts it like this… ‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not,” she shared. “Our aim through the partnership is that the youth enjoy the positive activities and heed to the necessary structure and discipline these sessions will require. The sky is the only limit in achievement for these bright individuals.”

Walton EMC highlights youth of WCBGC in Classic Golf Tournament

Classic Golf Tournament Photo.jpg

Walton County Boys & Girls Club members recently enjoyed a day of Golf during the Walton EMC Charity Golf Classic sponsored by Walton Electric Membership Corporation.  All funds raised at the tournament go toward the general operating budget of the Walton Club.

Teachable Golf Moment.jpg

“This year’s event was very special to me as Unit Director,” Mr. Lynn E. Hill, Club Director shared. “My father worked at the Walton EMC and retired there after 35 years of employment. Several employees still remember his tenure there, and we do this charity in honor of him and his dedication to Walton EMC. I’m so proud to see this legacy continue through myself and passed down to our Teens and Youth whom we encourage every day.”

The event was highlighted by the Keystone Club and Teens of the Walton Club participated in the event by speaking with golfers and sponsors on the Golf Course, eating lunch with participants and learning the game of Golf from tournament players.

Each year the Walton EMC recognizes outstanding teens of the Walton County Club and spends the day in an effort to promote fundraising for the BGC.  Those youth were recognized at the tournament. 

“These Teens who represented our Boys & Girls Club were excited to be in the Golf Classic.  As I spoke with the principals of the schools, they were all excited to excuse them from the schools because they whole-heartedly felt that the members would benefit from the event and excite them into future endeavors,” Hill shared. 

Senior Golfing.jpg

For WCBGC member Ronny Monford learning golf from those present was an exciting new skill to acquire.

“I love to play all kinds of sports,” he said. “It creates a healthy lifestyle, yet I find this sport to be the most enjoyable!”

Janiya Smith, another Club member, shared “This has been one of the best days ever! I met some really great people from my community with good hearts for the Club.”

“My heart is overjoyed with an opportunity to serve these wonderful teens who have come out to the Golf Classic today. I know the potential of these students, and that is why I wanted to come out and be a part of this annual event,” a WCBGC Volunteer shared. “I believe also that it is not so much as to how much money was raised here at this event, but to see how these Teens had an opportunity to be exposed to something that they may have ever experienced before, and to see the look on their faces, was and is priceless.  I’ve worked to support Teens before, but this year was truly special.”
