Congressman Gosar honors Club Kid

Congressman comes to town to honor Club Kid Bullhead City, Ariz. – Earlier this week, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) visited the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Colorado River for one reason: to honor a seven year old member of the Club for her artistic skills. Earlier this year, the Arizona Congressional District 4 Representative sponsored a district-wide Easter Card coloring contest, where Daisy Solis Esquer took first place in the Seven and Younger age group, edging out kids from across the district, including Yuma and Prescott Valley. Prior to Congressman Gosar presenting Esquer with a special certificate (above), the pair toured the Bullhead City branch, including the Arts & Crafts classroom and greenhouse area, while also playing foosball in the Games Room. Congressman Gosar also presided over a meet and greet session with invited guests, including dignitaries, volunteer board members from the Club and local media.   Photos: Paul...
