Brown if a task is once begun never leave it till it s done be the labor great or Small do it Well or not at i Don t know who wrote those simple lines but whoever wrote them was a person of some experience and awareness. It s so simple to Start a new project and then somewhere along the Way it always gets much More difficult to finish the Job. I m not thinking right now about such things As vegetable gardens or painting a House. I m thinking about boys. I be known Many boys and i m sure you have too who were neglected. There Are Many reasons for even something like that Hap Lack of Money and both parents forced to a fatal Accident or illness that robs a child of his father or whatever the circumstances not Only the child himself but society is the loser. Local boys clubs from coast to coast have Only one objective to make every boys life As full As possible of the Good things that will bring him not Only immediate pleasure hut a spirit through his activities that will give him the attitudes and ideals he will need to Mold a firm character for the future. As i look Back Over four years of sound steady Progress of the Kingsport boys club it brings to mind another poem by an unknown philosopher drop a Pebble in the water just a splash and it is gone but there s half a Hundred Ripples circling on and on on spreading spreading from the Center flowing on out to the sea and there is no Way of telling where the end is going to a few far seeing citizens of our Community tossed that first its influence wid ened into a current that has attracted boys of All Ages and Community wide support and enthusiasm. We have grown so fast that we can now boast of having one of the largest. Memberships in the Southern Region and yet we have one of the smallest buildings. It is a pitifully inadequate building that was never meant to accommodate even a Small percentage of the Large daily attendance that flows through its doors. I Hope the Day will soon come we will have a new boys club such As Knoxville is now with class rooms gymnasium and indoor swimming Pool. It is not impose has been done in much smaller communities than ours. One child s life is Worth the time Money and Effort. Boys clubs Mark a task be gun. Let s see that it s a Job. Well done. An up to Date mod Ern building Here in Kingsport would stand As a living Monu ment to what a Community Effort can the far reach ing effects of that first Pebble in the water.
