Third grader Aiden Vinson was especially excited. Cowpens Elemenatary Principal Cindy Snead said the first words out of Vinson's mouth when he arrived at school that morning were "When does Boys and Girls Club start?" Vinson and 11 other students are the school's first club members. Cowpens Elementary School held the grand opening of a Boys and Girls Club on Tuesday.
