Boys & Girls Club hosts annual block party

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

It's National Boys and Girls Club Week in the U.S., and the local chapter of the club here in the valley celebrated in style. 

The Boys and Girls Club of the Chattahoochee Valley teamed up with Amerigroup for their annual block party on Friday night. 

It was an event for the entire family as dozens came out to enjoy music, food and games. 

Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr and other community leaders were also in attendance to soak in all the fun. 

“We want the kids to enjoy themselves, just have a day of fun,” said one of the event’s organizers. 

“This is a good thing for them to see law enforcement in a different light, that we’re out here, they can talk to us, relate to us, and it just builds a better camaraderie, what they think about law enforcement,” Sheriff Darr said. 

The big party took place on 29th Street in Columbus.
