Boys Ranch Ribbon Cutting

This past Saturday marked a special celebration in the lives of our Boys Ranch youth and staff. The brand new Boys Ranch Recreation and Activities Center was dedicated along with a special ribbon cutting. Representatives from the Boys Ranch, MCH administration and special donors, alumni and friends were in attendance. Here are some pictures from the memorable celebration.

After the Ribbon Cutting, the Ranch held it's first free-throw contest. Five boys competed in the contest against their challenger, Dick Kenyon, a member of the MCH Board of Directors.

While at the Ranch for the Groundbreaking in the fall of 2008, Kenyon had challenged the boys to a free-throw contest once the gym was complete. Kenyon made good on his challenge during the Ribbon Cutting and even managed to win! The boys were excited to compete against Kenyon.

Over the course of the past week the boys have wholeheartedly embraced the new facility with even more boys participating in recreation than usual. Thank you to all the individuals, families, churches and foundations who made this building project a success.
