Builders’ Club members voted to donate all the proceeds from their spring events, $1200, to the One Fund Boston, Inc. This foundation supports those who were injured in the bombings at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. The members of the Builders’ Club were particularly interested in helping the children involved in that event, some of whom lost their parents, or lost limbs.
The Builders’ Club is a service club for sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders. During the 2012-2013 school year, the Builders’ Club held two dances, two dodgeball tournaments, a craft party for third- and fourth-graders, and served refreshments at two senior centers. Ms. Kearney, the club faculty advisor, is looking forward to another successful year in 2013-2014
