Though known locally as the Eufaula Boys & Girls Club for several years, the club was officially a branch of the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama (Ozark). This year, that changed when the organization became its own club.
“We’ve worked hard to become our own club,” said Wachs Tuesday morning during the Boys & Girls Club Breakfast of Champions event. “We had to begin (this club) under the wing of the (Boys & Girls Club) in Ozark.”
Wachs thanked all the dedicated citizens who made this achievement possible, including Clyde McGuire, “a driving force behind us becoming a stand-alone club,” said Wachs, and Teresa Sheffield, who sparked the idea of a Boys & Girls Club in Eufaula almost a decade ago.
“Look where we are now, Teresa,” Wachs said to Sheffield, who attended the breakfast event.
Wachs reminded the audience that with this honor comes the responsibility of spawning new clubs in a seven-county area in the surrounding Alabama/Georgia region.
