Blue Bell Rotary Event to Support Wissahickon Valley

Club receives VNA Grant!

North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club Makes Technology Improvements via Grant from
The VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn
Lansdale, PA: The North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club, at 16 Susquehanna Avenue in Lansdale, PA, received $8,750 from the VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn to make technology improvements.
The grant provided support to the Club’s three locations: the North Penn Clubhouse in Lansdale, the Indian Valley Clubhouse in Souderton, and the Wissahickon Valley Clubhouse in Ambler, PA. The grant will help the Club upgrade its email system, networks, and donor management systems.
Robert K. Kreamer, Chief Executive Officer of the North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club, expressed gratitude for the VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn’s generous support.
“The VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn’s grants will enable us to offer important opportunities for learning and recreation to children and teens, and help us upgrade the technology at our Clubs,” Kreamer said.
The North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club was started in 1966 by a small group of local families who wanted recreational opportunities for their young sons. Today, the Club hosts 3,000 children annually in some 50 programs, including opportunities in athletics, the arts, and community service. For more information about the Club, please visit www.npvclub.org.

Ms. Chidera Brings S.T.E.AM. to WV

Our Wissahickon High School senior, Ms. Chidera, was able to bring her Wissahickon Valley Public Library S.T.E.AM. program to our organization. In this club our kids were able to extract DNA from a strawberry, learn about the viscosity of slime and understand how density can effect certain liquids!

Ms. Chidera and her S.T.E.A.Mers.

Not only were the kids able to put their left and right side of their brains to use but they were also able to have fun! Next year we will miss her but we wish her the best of luck during her college career at the University of Pittsburgh! Thanks Ms. Chidera!
