Welcome to the Boys and Girls Club in Alamosa. This is the place where I will be doing a lot of my community service. I will be coming in Monday through Friday from 3:00p.m to 6:00p.m. I will be spending most of my time tutoring and helping in other areas when necessary. Last week was my first official week and It was a blast. If you don't believe me, just take a look at some of the pictures.
