Although things have slowed down slightly after Youth of the Year, my work here has not. My projects have gotten smaller as we’re in the between stages of preparing for our next major event. At the start of fall each year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Chattahoochee Valley hold their annual Upatoi Polo Cup. The details of this event are so large, we begin planning mid April, early May. Therefore we aim to get smaller projects and general club marketing done before our time is strictly placed on this large scale event.
As of right now, we are focusing on our Women’s Giving Circle Kick-Off Luncheon next week. The Women’s Giving Circle’s plan is to cultivate the artwork the children complete in the club’s each day through the Fine Arts Programs. Funds raised during the luncheon will help provide supplies and resources for club members to participate in more Fine Arts related programming whether it is in the clubs or providing the opportunity to go on field trips to get exposure to various arts programs in the area.
In assisting with this program I have created a news release that will go out to our media sources early next week. In addition, I have sent out a small save the date to Phenix City Life magazine. I also had the pleasure of creating the organization’s mission statement.
“The Women’s Giving Circle is a community of women coming together to educate, engage and support the BGCCV’s youth through development efforts in the Chattahoochee Valley.”
In the closing of this week I will be working on another news release focusing on our 2013 successes. In comparison to 2012 we have improved in our targeted program areas. These areas include: Academic Success, Good Character & Leadership and Healthy Lifestyles.
I have also been continuing my regular duties in updating all of our social media outlets. I have to say that is the best part of my day as I get to view the photos of our kids having fun in the clubs.
