ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Children spending their summer at the Boys and Girls club welcomed visitors to their Jefferson Street branch.

It was part of the "Big Blue Bus Tour", an opportunity for business owners and community leaders to see for themselves what happens daily at a Boys and Girls Club.

"You know initially I thought the Boys and Girls Club, they come out just to have fun, but I have been enlightened to see they are also being educated as well. It's been a great experience," said Makeba Wright, Dougherty DA Investigator.

The group visited three sites in Albany during the Blue Bus Tour.
