Jack McWhirter is pictured with President Terry Davis at the 26 Jan 17 club meeting at The Kitchen. Jack made a presentation to the club that allowed us to delve deeper into what and where the club spends the majority of it’s time and resources on. He also looked at where we spend the most time fundraising compared to where we are most successful bringing in funds for the club that fund the programs and projects we do in Scott County.
The programs we sponsor in partnership with the schools in Scott County are the most successful and well thought of by the community. These programs include the BUG Program which supports 302 third graders in five public schools and the Service Leadership Clubs we sponsor at five public schools. Approximately 170 students are involved in these clubs that develop leadership through community service.
The flag program and golf scramble are clearly the most successful fundraisers we participate in each year. Consideration on how to ensure they remain viable and grow and how to improve our other fundraisers are important to our being able to support the programs and projects for kids in Scott County.
The club appreciated Jack’s insights and discussion.
