The Boys and Girls Club of The Wiregrass was one of more than 5,000 locations around the country to hold an after school rally.
These rallies give parents, community and business leaders, elected officials and the media an opportunity to see first hand the benefits of after school programs.
The Boys and Girls Club Afterschool Programs strive to encourage school age children to enhance their educational, emotional and athletic skills.
Officials said their mission is to raise national and local awareness of the importance of after school programs and to ensure that all children have access to quality, affordable after school programs.
