Erik Dyrland, Farmers Insurance Agent, makes generous contribution to Boys & Girls Clubs

Erik Dyrland, Farmers Insurance Agent in Bellingham, made a generous contribution to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Whatcom County. Dyrland, who has served on the Corporate Board of the organization for over a decade, when asked “Why the Boys & Girls Clubs?”, found the answer quite easy. “It’s a safe place for kids. Now especially, as times are more difficult for parents, there are fewer opportunities for kids to be involved in positive activities. There is outstanding leadership at the Clubs, programs are well organized, and it is a place where kids can go after school and remain out of trouble.” Dyrland closed by saying, “What better investment is there in our future than to empower our kids into becoming outstanding young adults?”

Dyrland Rises to “Elite” Status Again…
