What's happening at the Laurel Boys and Girls Club?

Recently, three (3) very popular programs, Soccer, Pom Poms and Cheerleading, at the Laurel Boys and Girls Club(LBGC) lost their commissioners and entire coaching staff due to resignation. What is going on?

These programs have been staples at the LBGC for years. If these programs are no longer being offered for the Laurel community children then how is the LBGC being used? Who is benefitting from the LBGC? Is it being used for our children, children from another area, or some other purpose? Who is responsible or accountable for the LBGC. I have personally supported several fundraising ventures and I want to know how and where the money is being used.

Does anybody have an answer?

Thanks for your past support of programs at the club. To address your concerns, the club does still offer, Soccer, Cheerleading, and Pom Poms, additionally the club offers tutoring, high school development, and dance. Just recently the club partnershiped with the Laurel Friendship Senior Club to provide a facility for seniors to play bingo, travel, crafts, etc. Visit the club anytime to find out what we do here. To answer your question as to where the kids come from, 1923 come from the city of Laurel, 623 from Howard County, 919, from other parts of P.G. County and a host of others from other parts of the Greater Laurel area. The Laurel Boys and Girls Club is the largest youth serving organization in Maryland and has been providing service to its community for over 50 years. Hope that addresses your concerns.
