Koenig Quoted in Article on Girls & Boys Club

Phil Koenig was quoted and pictured in a June 25, 2012, article in the Dispatch on the Boys & Girls Club.

The bylined story of Kelly Steiner described a $100,000 donation the club received from Skills, Inc. to renovate a Boys & Girls Club teen center in Moline.

The center will encourage local youths to stay off the streets while helping them with schoolwork and providing a place for athletics, dancing, pool and ping pong. It will also include a branch of a local credit union that will employ local youths and teach them basic business manners.

Phil serves as board president of the Boys & Girls Club of the Mississippi Valley. He has lent his fundraising efforts and financial, moral and legal support to the group.

The Web site where the online version of the Dispatch article resides also includes photographic images taken that day.
