May the 4th Be With You Car Parade
On Monday, May 4th the Rotterdam Club, an affiliate of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Schenectady, held a May the 4th Be With You Car Parade. The staff really miss their families and wanted to do something to celebrate hope with the community. Staff gathered outside of the Club at safe distances and families came through in their vehicles in a ‘parade route’ in the parking lot!
Staff loved the opportunity to see their families and wanted families to know that the Boys & Girls Clubs are still here providing encouragement, virtual programming, Grab & Go meals and much-needed support during this unprecedented time.
Nicole Smith, Program Director, said “It was bitter-sweet to see our members. I loved seeing their smiling faces and the pictures they drew that said how much they missed us!”
