TUPELO – Families interested in becoming involved in the Boys and Girls Club and community members interested in learning about their local clubs have the opportunity to tour the two Tupelo facilities Friday as a part of National Boys and Girls Club Week.

Both the Haven Acres Club, at 3288 Willie Moore Road, and Northside Club, at 517 Linden Hill off North Green Street, will show off their facilities and programming Friday and the North Green Street Club will host an ice cream social with inflatable games, weather permitting.

“Basically, this is Boys and Girls Club Week and it presents a wonderful opportunity for us to bring awareness to Boys and Girls Club and highlight our programs,” said Tonny Oliver, director of operations for the Boys and Girls Club of North Mississippi. “This also gives the community an opportunity to take a vested interest in their club.”

The clubs will both host their open house events from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Friday.

Oliver said it will also be a good opportunity for anyone interested in joining the club to see everything they have to offer.
