A roomful of little girls painted their nails, chased balloons and shared snacks after school. The girls are some of the first members of Building Leaders in North Georgia, or “BLING,” a new after-school, girls-only club through the Gainesville Housing Authority. Jim Chapman with the housing authority said the club was started for residents at both Melrose Apartments and Harrison Square.
