If you're a Portlander, you know how strong the sense of community in this town is. Joe appreciates the organizations that foster this community and empower our youth, including the folks at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine, whose mission is to inspire and enable all young people, particularly those who need it most, to realize their full potential as responsible, productive and caring citizens. On Friday April 1st (not April 4th, contrary to the photo below!), the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine are hosting their 34th Annual Spring for the Kids Auction at BGC's Portland Clubhouse on Cumberland Ave. Find more about the event here. Your support helps children and teens reach their full potential as individuals, students and citizens. The Clubs thank you for your support, and Joe thanks the Clubs for their important work.
