Cheyenne Boys And Girls Club Annual Breakfast
Several hundred people attended the annual Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne's " Back a Kid" breakfast On Tuesday May 22nd. The "Planting Seeds for Success" Program included an update on the clubs activities and a progress report on the proposed new $5.8 million facility which is set to be built on Jefferson Road, south of the Holiday Inn.
The program also included comments from the Wyoming Youth of the Year, 16 year old Christopher Love. The award was offered by the Wyoming alliance of Boys and Girls Clubs and is the highest honor a member can receive. Love, who has been a member of the boys and girls club since for about six years, says the club changed his life. Love is set to compete at the regional level in Dallas in early June.
The Keynote speaker was Victor Rivas Rivers, actor and author of the book "A Private Family Matter." The book chronicles the years of unspeakable violence he endured from his father. He also talked about the people that helped him along the way to becoming extremely successful and a caring, loving father to his children. Mr. Rivers is the national spokesperson for the National Network to End Domestic Violence.
