Happy Valentine’s Day! Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich members celebrated Valentine’s Day by way of Board member Rebecca Breed’s annual ice cream social on Thursday.

Rebecca joined the fun at the Clubhouse to ensure members get the sweet treats in honor of this holiday.

The Clubhouse was brimming with Valentine’s decorations and ‘Thank You Rebecca’ cards and gifts created by the kids who highly anticipate this sweet annual event now in its 11th year.

Last week, Rebecca was honored as the Club’s 2019 Champion of Youth. She has helped countless higher-education bound young people fulfill their dreams to attend college. In addition to her Board commitments, Rebecca volunteered in the Club’s Learning Center and helped children with homework. As a native of Greenwich, she has served as Selectman for 6 years, 2 as First Selectman. Afterwards she went to law school and practiced juvenile law in Stamford for many years.

Without citizens like Rebecca, Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich would not be able to fulfill its mission to prepare young people, through enrichment opportunities and supportive relationships, to be responsible, caring and productive community members. For more information on how to support community children, please email Bobby Walker, BGCG CEO at info@bgcg.org.
