Youth attending the summer program at the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County had the opportunity to be in attendance at the July 13th City Council meeting. Alderman Chris Sooter took the young men and women on a tour of City Hall. The tour and attendance at the meeting was a wonderful service learning experience of how our local government operates. Mayor Bob McCaslin was quoted by NWA Online as saying he was thankful to the club for the program. “They are learning to serve others at an early age,” the Mayor said.
of our club members report finding valuable adult connections at the club.
