Many people in the Coastal Empire have grown up with the Frank Callen Boys and Girls Club. Today, Mayor Otis Johnson, along with city and county representatives, helped kick off the club's annual fundraising banquet. Many alumni renewed their memberships, while some joined the club for the first time.
The club is encouraging anybody who wants to get involved in their community to come and join. "Well, we would like all our former members and our community at large to come in and be supportive of the Boys and Girls Club and the only way to do that is join us in the alumni association," said club president James Green.
The banquet will be held at Savannah State University on January 31. Call the club at 233-2939 for information about tickets. All of the proceeds will go toward providing after-school programs at the club.
