Boys and Girls Club Turns 110 Years Old

FEBRUARY 14, 2006 -- The Brigade Boys and Girls Club is celebrating its 110th birthday this Valentine's Day.

Youth members and staff celebrated the milestone with 110 cupcakes formed into a giant heart. Partygoers also enjoyed a magic show.

The club has grown and expanded over the years, but those who have close ties to it say little has changed as far as what the club is all about.

And it was no coincidence that the club was founded on Valentine's Day. It was done as an expression of love for the children.
