Celebrating 60 Years

If you ask many local residents where they learned to swim, play basketball or what they did after school when they were young, you might receive a common answer. It’s the Boys & Girls Club of Newport County. The club has been home to numerous youth, who have learned a sport, received homework assistance, attended camp, found a mentor, received childcare, enjoyed a balanced meal and in many cases, made life-long friendships.

Proudly serving the community since 1956, the Boys & Girls Club reaches an important milestone on March 25 when it celebrates its 60th anniversary.

The club has kicked off the celebration with the posting of old photos on Facebook and encourages local residents to share their fond memories. The event celebration will be at the Hotel Viking on Saturday, March 25. In addition to dinner and music, influential club supporters and the 2017 Youth of the Year will be honored.
