MONROE, Ga. - For the seventh consecutive year, Walton Electric Membership Corporation employees are making a difference in the lives of young people through the Boys and Girls Clubs of Walton County.
The cooperative's employees recently donated another $30,000 to the organization from the proceeds of their sold-out annual spring golf tournament held at the Georgia Club in Statham. In all, Walton EMC employees have raised $154,000 for the Boys and Girls Club's quality developmental programs.
These programs and services exist so young people don't have to turn to the streets to find recreation and companionship. The Club's mission is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
