The Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich’s middle school members had a great time at last Friday night at their “middle school night,” where the theme was Challenge a Police Officer.

Approximately 75 middle school children (every week the attendance keeps growing) and 15 police officers, comprised of both Boys & Girls Club alumni and non-alumni men and women attended this fun event.

Athletic Coordinator, Camryn Ferrara and Teen Coordinator, Ryan Accurso worked together to prepare these events which both teens and staff love!

‘Challenge a Police Officer’ was a great night for the kids,”said Ferrara. “The officers weren’t just here to be here. They were here getting involved and having a fun time.”

“Sgt. Tim Hilderband came over to me and said Tom Huestis and another officer said ‘This is why they became cops.’ It was great to hear that,” Ferrara said.
