Walton County Boys & Girls Clubrecently partnered with Monroe Country Day School to supply added space to its members during gym time.
MCDS member, Andrew, shared “I love being here at the Club and making new friends with other kids. When we play here it doesn’t matter how skilled you are – we are just having a good time.”
Shelia Staebell of Monroe Country Day School said the school’spartnership is a part of our Community Outreach program.
“Since we have been coming to the Walton Club, the kids will finish their lunch ten minutes early so that they can come to the gym, she shared. “The gym gives the students an opportunity to play an organized sport because they have more space. Even the high school students look forward to coming over to the Club so they can play pickle ball.”
Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, shared that the partnership has been a wonderful opportunity for Club members to meet new friends and serve the community at large.
“When we are able to form partnerships with others who need our services, it allows us to meet a greater need within our community,” he shared. “The use of our facility allows the youth to use the gym instead of having to go outside for recess, especially when the outside temperatures can hit upwards of high 90 degrees and feel like it’s over 100 degrees.”
