K, nine year old son of Ambre and Patrick, is Boys & Girls Club of Alpenaís
January Youth of the Month.
Eli is always enthusiastic about trying new
programs and games at the club. While doing programs at the Club Eli is well-mannered,
listens, and encourages his peers to do the same. Eliís favorite summer program
is wacky weather, which teaches the members about the different types of
weather patterns, clouds, and natural disasters.
Kruczynski also enjoys Healthy
Habits, which focuses on teaching the members healthy eating patterns, keeping
hydrated, and exercising. One of the reasons he likes this program so much is due
to his for healthy food, especially his favorite food broccoli. The staff can
always count on Eli to ask for a second helping of broccoli. Pictured above is
Eli helping prepare fruit kabobs with staff member, Brooke Mainville.
At the Club Eli forms a small group
with his friends to battle and check out each otherís Pokťmon cards. If a new
player joins the game Eli is quick to explain and help that youth. Itís fun to
see the children engage in an activity that staff members remember playing in
Kruczynskiís favorite part of the
Club is the fitness activities they hold. The Triple Play Challenge activities
range from kickball and football to obstacle courses and mileage club. The best
part about having Eli in these activities is that he shows great sportsmanship
in all the Triple Play Challenges.
