Club Lunch and Business Program 
Angie Mock is our guest speaker today. She is the CEO of Boys and Girls Club since 2011. They serve over 9000 youths ages 6 to 18 and there are 47 after school programs. Angie said that their app, Club on the Go, allows them to stay touch with the youths during this time. The Club has a long standing relationship with the San Antonio Food Bank. They provide customized care packages for the youths including snacks, STEM activities, and gift cards. They offer virtual programming and use videos to connect with the kids to help them with their academics. It does not replace the direct contact with the kids due to the need to see the lifestyle. There is online homework assistance. They are looking to open June 1st. There is a 1:10 leader to student ratio.  When the kids come back they'll need help more than ever. Many times the kids are safer at the club than they are at home. She invited our club to take a tour of the campus.
Missing Pins or Badges
It's been a challenge for some of us to wear our pins for the meetings. Heck, we're just happy to be able to find the zoom meeting.
