We had a great time kicking off Team 60 at the Trophy Tribute! Over 400 children received trophies to honor their commitment and achievements in athletics, scholarship and the arts! We also announced a special opportunity: the first 60 people who sign up for Team 60 will receive a custom 60th anniversary hat.
Project Make-It Mini Golf Competition
Our boys and girls had a great time at Ranken Technical College for the Project Make-It Mini Golf Competition! We are so proud of our youth. Each student designed an operating mini golf course using recycled material and elements of engineering, coding, and design thinking. Shoutout to AT&T for believing in our youth and supporting the competition!
Black History Month Workshop
We had a great time and learned a lot at our Black History Month Workshop! The Mathews-Dickey community gathered to learn about and pay tribute to generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity.
Happy Birthday Mr. Mathews
This month, we wished Mr. Mathews a happy birthday! After all these years, he continues to make a difference in the lives of St. Louis youth. In 1960, Mr. Mathews and Mr. Dickey recognized the role that athletics can play in helping young people learn important life values: responsibility, respect, restraint and teamwork. Since then, the Club has evolved into an organization that continues to positively impact thousands of STL youth. Without Mr. Mathews’ dedication to youth and our programs, we wouldn’t be the organization we are today.
During NHL Allstar Week, the NHL and American Legacy presented a mobile museum that celebrated black achievement in hockey. The NHL Black Hockey Museum Tour visited Mathews-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club, and the community got to tour the museum! It showcased today’s stars while looking back at the pioneers who helped shape NHL history.
