New Gymnasium for Boys & Girls Clubs

Ribbon cutting marks new gym opening for Boys and Girls Clubs.

Tonya D. Bacon

My better half, Tonya Doby, stays busy just as I do – juggling our family, working at a full time job with a social media/PR consultancy and as an adjunct faculty member at the Catholic University of America, and serving on the board of directors for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington Maryland Region.  In the past, she has been helpful with Farragut Films’ PR/media efforts, but is now involved supporting Farragut Films through special projects and encouragement/support.

Recently, she helped with some media coverage of the unveiling of the new Boys & Girls Clubs Germantown Branch gymnasium, which took about 10 years to materialize.  The Boys & Girls Clubs play a vital role in lives of the children, and many members of the business and local community came together to ensure that the children would have proper gym facilities to carry out all of their daily fun, exciting and team building activities.

Governor Martin O’Malley, Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett, Congressman Chris Van Hollen (Maryland’s 8th District), and other congressional leaders were on hand at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Attending this event and supporting her, reminded me of community outreach.  Like Tonya, Farragut Films is committed to community outreach.  Part of our corporate filing objectives for the non-profit status was and is to work with young people to get them more exposed to the art of film-making, acting, behind-the-scenes work, and other activities associated to the entertainment industry.

    Bravo! Its the trek thing to do!I’m becoming more and more impressted with you and other trek fan orgs, that are deeply involved in various community projects @ helping the less fortunate.I myself worked countless homeless shelters with my daughters.food drives low cost daycare for poor working women@ families.there is so much out there that is undone due now to health constraints I had to give up on a lot of my activities .My daughters and my grandkids are carrying on.especialy battered woman.in past times I hid them in my home.
    I guess what I’m trying to say is us trekkies have a social and moral responsibility to our fellow man. I see many stepping up to the plate.its in the bylaws of trek organizations. What else can I say except keep up the GREAT work so others can live long and Prosper. Go Carefully
