The writer’s opinion on the Boys & Girls Clubs…

  • The boys and girls club is a fun place to be. You learn about how to use the computers, do art, and learn how to play games and much more. You get to play with your friends. Also we have a talent show which is called Icon. We have a Snack Shack where they let us buy food. The best part is Friday Fun day. It is the day when you do fun things all day long at the club.
