BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County celebrated its 55th anniversary Friday with a party for local kids.
This week marked National Boys & Girls Club week. The Kern County chapter celebrated this week with camps, ending Friday with a “Blue Party” at the Armstrong Youthb Center.
“We are honored and grateful to be on the front lines every day serving thousands of children with life-changing programs,” executive director Zane Smith said.
The Boys & Girls Clubs say stats show kids who participate in the program on a regular basis are more likely to be engaged in school and give back to their community.
