The Annual Christmas Party for the Boys & Girls Club Along the Allegheny was held in the club at the Crawford Center on Hill Street in Emlenton, Pa. This year to start the party a presentation was made to Scott and Teresa Vogel, pictured above, with the B& G Club Executive Director, Brad Rapp. Rapp thanked the Vogels for their continued support of the Club every year for the past 15 years. The Vogels, and members of the Venango County ATV Traction Club, have raised thousands of dollars for Christmas presents that they bring to the club every year. This year Rapp presented a specially designed plaque to the Vogels for all of their efforts through the years for spearheading this project for the ATV Traction Club by raising the money, buying the gifts and wrapping them, all for the pleasure of seeing smiles on the B&G Club members’ faces.
Club members showed their appreciation and gave the Vogels a big round of applause and thank yous.
The Boys & Girls Club Along the Allegheny has been celebrating the 20th Anniversary of its founding in 2001.
