    question of what to do with their kids during summer vacation time (year round, actually):

    The Boys and Girls Clubs of America

    My grandkids spent time at our local Boys and Girls club when they were younger. It was a terrific place with some extraordinarily helpful young staff.

    I urge everyone who can to donate to their local Boys and Girls Club, it offers scholarship to the families who cannot afford even the low cost of most B&G Club fees.

      It is $40.00 a week including meals and a small charge for extra activities. They just opened a great new facility and the kids love it. Most of my neighbors are sending their kids to the "Country Club" for $250.00 a week (no meals). BGC has scholarships if that is too much.
