Eric Tetler graduated from Springfield College with a bachelor of science in sports management in 1992. He has worked for Windfield Alloy in Atkinson, New Hampshire, since 1994. Eric Tetler has donated to the Bowl-a-Thon fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Derry.

The Boys & Girls Club has served the youth of Greater Derry since 1969, and has several programs from which children can learn and grow. One is the Art Club.

The Greater Derry chapter is one of 4,000 Boys & Girls clubs nationwide actively trying to spot young artists. The local group takes part in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA’s) National Fine Arts Exhibit, a competition which encourages children’s creativity, skills, and appreciation of art.

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Derry will enter artwork in four age divisions and 10 separate categories. The best artwork selected at the regional district level will go on to compete at the national level, where 37 winners are chosen. Various events for the next year will then showcase the winning artwork.

The Greater Derry chapter’s Art Club meetings occur on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00 p.m., and space is limited.
