We all have moments that shape us. Parts of our lives that make us who we are. For some, that was their time at the Boys & Girls Clubs.
That’s why we are launching an Alumni & Friends Club. Maybe you attended the Club and your Club experience helped define who you are or maybe you know how critical it is to support today’s youth. Either way, you can make a difference through Alumni & Friends.
We Have Awesome Alumni!
In celebration of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County’s through the years we are highlighted some of our amazing alumni. Our goal is to highlight Alumni and their accomplishments monthly.
If you are a Club Alum, know of one we should feature or would like to enroll in our Alumni & Friends Club let us know. It’s simple, email firstname.lastname@example.org

Hope attended Club from a young age. From Club member to Club professional, she has worked hard to be her own boss at a local salon in Billings!
“I remember feeling so cool when my dad would pick me up during “Power Hour” so I didn’t
have to stick around for the remainder of the quiet homework time, but always begging to stay
if he ended up working a little later”
Myra joined the Club in 2005 and remained a member for 8 years. “One of my proudest moments was being nominated for Youth of the Year… I had a blast sharing my story and meeting so many people in the process!”
Ricardo joined the Club in 1971 and the membership fee was $1.25 and remembers Gordon Eldredge as the manager of the Club but also as a great boss. Ricardo recalls “the Boys Club was a safe place to go and a place for me to grow.”
Clay Smith is an adamant Club supporter. In fact, Clay was one of the driving forces
behind a community fundraiser this summer that benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs. Clay has a contagious personality and is committed to the Billings community.
