The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania recently held its Sixth Annual Joseph Van R. Clarke Thanksgiving Dinner. Members enjoyed a complete turkey dinner with all of the fixings. The event was held on Monday, November 24, 2008. Children of the late Joseph Van R. Clarke sponsored the event, and members from the Scranton Chapter of the Kiwanis Club helped to serve the meal. Members from our Central City Unit as well as from some of our Luzerne County Extensions took part in the event. A good time was had by all. In addition, we held a special memorial at this event. Claire Fox, mother of deceased Boys & Girls Club member and talented artist, Kevin Fox were honored at this event. A framed poster that Kevin created in 1978 was hung at the Clubs Central Unit where Kevin spent many hours daily as a youngster. His talent will forever grace the lobby of our Club and he will be forever remembered.
The Boys & Girls Clubs is grateful to Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania for their continued commitment to the health and well-being of our community’s children.
