RE:     Candidacy to the Board of Directors, Boys & Girls Clubs of Any Town

Dear _______,

         I am pleased that you are interested in serving on our board. Please find enclosed an information
packet about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Any Town that includes a Board meeting schedule and member
roster, a committee description summary, and required service commitments. Also included is an
assortment of basic information about the Clubs.

        The Clubs are currently reaching over 5,000 children in our area with after school and summer
programming that promotes safe and fun activities for youth while encouraging healthy comprehensive
personal development. For example, our R.B.I. program will provide a summer full of baseball
excitement for over 700 kids. We are excited about the future and I welcome the opportunity to share
other Club activities with you in further detail.

         At our next board meeting, Friday, _______, we are planning to present your name for approval
and, although it is not required, we would like very much for you to attend. The meeting begins at 7:30
a.m. with a continental breakfast served and will conclude before 9:15 a.m. We will be meeting at the
Thornberry Boys & Girls Club, 3831 E. 43rd Street. Please let me know if you will be able to join us.

        Additionally, we have a board orientation planned for _________ from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m.
We hope to have all of our recently elected board members attend this brief session, which will be held at
one of the Club sites. We will, of course, provide you with address and driving directions prior to the
date.

        I appreciate your taking time from your busy schedule to review the information enclosed. You
have been highly recommended as an individual who would be an active advocate of, what we feel, is an
organization seriously committed to and capable of really impacting kids' lives in a positive way.

       Please feel free to call me if you have any questions, and let us know if you will plan to attend the
board meeting Friday – and the orientation on June 10th!

Sincerely,


David A. Smith
