I love this time of year – especially all of the opportunities we have to host groups at the Executive Residence for tours and events. This week, the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County stopped by for a tour of the holiday decorations. They actually made the ornaments for the tree in the sun room – Which is always one of the most popular displays. We are big supporters of the Boys and Girls Club and appreciate all the work that they do for young children all across the state. In offering after-school academic enrichment programs, they provide tutoring and guidance, fostering relationships between children and a strong role model, the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County helps to prepare kids for success, both inside and outside of the classroom.
