Our Lakewood Club site hosted a Be A Star Anti-Bullying Rally on Monday. Both Yazmin & Mikayla from Parkview came to Lakewood and spoke on the importance of stomping out bullying. These two club members formed their own club called the ABC Club (Anti Bullying Club). Jasmine & Makayla introduced other guests we also heard from such as Officer Gutierrez & Officer Griselda, Qudus & Giselle – members of our Torch Club at CMS, Zatoriya – Jr Staff and Youth of the Year participant, and Sara – Jr Staff and our 2019 Youth of the Year Winner. A big thank you to them for coming out to Lakewood and speaking at our first ever Be A Star Anti-Bullying Rally.
Lakewood took a stand against bullying with speeches and held a rally that concluded with a Stomp Out Bullying Walk! Each participant received a cool BGCDT wrist band and an Anti-Bully prevent booklet created by the CMS Torch Club members. This educational event was all part of our BGC Week celebration! Our guest speakers spoke about what exactly bullying means, how to prevent, personal stories and a Q&A session. Our members were reminded how we need to continue to stand together, be leaders and welcome everyone! It was a blast and everyone had a great time!
