The Walton County Boys & Girls Club has wrapped up another wonderful month in scholastic activities, character building, and developing lifestyles through the “BGC Way.”  In the month of January, we celebrated the advancements of Character Development by holding oratorical speeches made by our Youth of the Year, Mr. Ronnie Monford, III, who quoted in his speech, “Feed your passions, and starve your fears.” This speech was made as a highlight of celebration honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on January 18th, 2019.  On Friday, January 25th, 2019, the Walton Club introduced a new program, held during Assembly entitled, “Great Futures Start Here Spotlight”, in which Club Members can be recognized for their many accomplishments in academics, programs, or such talents as singing, dancing, rapping, poem-writing, and much more.  We also completed the month of January with a celebration of birthdays, an announcement of our newest volunteer, Mrs. Sherrie Blare, who introduced to our SMART Girls, an activity called, “Adult Coloring”, which brought out the creative energy of these girls, ages 10-14 years old, The Walton Club strives for amazing endeavors in the month of February 2019.
