Last month, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club hosted its first Alumni Day event. The event welcomed in decades of alumni who attended the Club growing up. This year marks the Club’s 50th anniversary at its current R Street location which was also celebrated during the day.
Throughout the event, alumni had opportunities to reconnect with childhood friends, tour the newly renovated facility, and share their stories of the time spent at the Club. Many shared how the Club “saved their life” and they didn’t know where they would be today if it weren’t for the Club.
Awards were presented to several alumni recognizing their contributions to the Club and the Church Hill community. Mayor Levar Stoney and Sheriff Antoinette Irving provided remarks during the program. During the program the James H. Bryant Scholarship Fund was announced which will help provide scholarship opportunities for future generations to attend the Club.
