There were a couple of articles in this week’s Morrison County Record (December 9, 2007) about the Boys and Girls Club of America setting up a chapter here in Morrison County.  The local chapter is looking at purchasing the old Central Office Building from the Little Falls School District for its home.

Tina Snell included a little history of the Boys and Girls Club in her article, writing that it was founded during the Civil War and was originally called the Dashaway Club.  I don’t know about you, but I prefer the old name of the club.  It’s more intriguing and romantic than the Boys and Girls Club of America.  If I was still a kid, I would definitely be more inclined to join the Dashaway Club.
