Mr. Josh drove to the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County Bella Vista Unit early Tuesday morning, which was the first day back for the all staff and the first cleaning day. When he arrived at the club early, like he always does, he saw the oldest club member, Matthew Vasquez, waiting on the steps outside. Mathew rode his bike approximately 5 miles just to help out the Club in whatever way he could. Mr. Josh talked with him for a few minutes before all the staff members arrived to clock in. He asked him why he wanted to come help us rather than enjoy the rest of his summer break. Mathew replied, “I love the club, and like being at the club no matter what I’m doing here, even if it is cleaning. I would rather be at the club than anywhere else.” Truly an outstanding youth!
