Support what matters – Our Youth!
Posted on 26 February 2017
A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of being a vendor at a benefit shoot for the Boys and Girls Club of Alexander City (Alabama) hosted at Lower Wetumpka Shotgun Sports Club (LWSSC). That day’s forecast had threatened rain and a few participants opted out at the last minute. Frankly, even we considered skipping out based on the prospect of a rainy, chilly day. Thankfully, our brains kicked into the right gear and we decided to go come what may – and we are so glad we did! We made the hour-and-a-half trek to LWSSC in record time and not a drop of rain in sight.
To be honest, I had no real appreciation of the important role the Boys and Girls Club plays in our communities to help those that need a helping hand. However, as the day progressed, I was truly impressed and humbled by the commitment, dedication and hard of staff of the Boys and Girls Club. I realized just how important this work and why organizations like this one need and deserve our support.
As we drove home that afternoon, I thought about something else. In these times, when our nation is so divided and each of us is to quick to blame the other side, an event like this reminds me that there are, indeed, things for which we can and should come together.
