We make a mini run out of it and present the check to the administrators.
It is a blast! We pass out stickers and last year key chains to the boys. They mob us!
It is a great time and rewarding experience every year.

The Club for Boys Code
I will show my love for God in the way I treat my family, friends, and fellow members. I will show respect for our flag and our country, which has given me my freedom. I will show my gratitude for our club by displaying fair play, honesty, sportsmanship, and respect for the staff, club equipment, and my fellow members in all that I do. I will show kindness to others and will expect them to show kindness to me. I understand my membership depends on my ability to live up to this.
