"The Boys and Girls Club of Kingston & Area officially opened in 1993 in partnership with the Rotary Club of Kingston. As the Rotarian who was invited by President Doug Forbes to play the lead role in transition, it is exciting after 20 years of rapid growth to know that over 2,000 children and youth were served in 2013. It’s incredible to recall the humble beginnings when the major concerns were meeting the monthly payroll and finding a suitable location to organize programs."
