Boys & Girls Club plans performance to celebrate anniversary

MILFORD – For 20 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley in Mil­ford has been in the fore­front of youth development in the community, with a particular focus on provid­ing opportunities for young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances.

Our mission is to enable all young people, especial­ly those who need us most, to be great today and reach their full potential as pro­ductive, caring, responsible citizens tomorrow.

For the last 10 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley’s home has been "at the bend" in the Souhegan Valley river. Our facility is located in the for­mer Souhegan Valley The­atre, previously the home of the American Stage Festival and Playhouse 101.

During the last decade, Boys & Girls Club staff members and volunteers have empowered thousands of youths in the Souhegan Valley, changing many young people’s lives. Whether per­forming onstage or partic­ipating in our after-school and vacation programs, children have experienced life-changing programs that help them perform better academically, develop good character and leadership skills, and adopt healthy life­styles.

On Saturday, Aug. 1, we will celebrate the impact our organization has on the Souhegan Valley communi­ty by revisiting theater per­formances from the last 10 years, reflecting on our 20- year success as a youth de­velopment organization, and welcoming back many of the talented young people, sup­porters, volunteers, staff and board members who helped shape our history.

All are invited to join our celebration at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts, 56 Mont Vernon St. Tickets are $25, and include a 6:30 p.m. reception with appetizers and cash bar.

Show curtains open at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available at tinyurl.com/celebrateSVB­GC.

Proceeds will benefit the programs of the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Val­ley.
