My walk down a city street in Atlanta, Georgia last week took me past a Sculpture Garden in front of the national headquarters for the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA). Did you know that their clubs have been helping kids reach their full potential for more than 150 years? This all started back in 1860 when the first club was formed in Hartford, Connecticut.
There is a commemorative plaque in this garden dedicating these children sculptures to the memory of Hays Clark, 1918-2005 who was a powerful force for positive change at Boys & Girls Clubs of America. What a wonderful tribute to such a great cause and organization!
