Santa Paula News

Saturday, September 25th is going to be a busy day at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley at the Santa Paula Clubhouse.

It is the Boys & Girls Club Day for Kids, United Way’s Day of Caring and the Club’s Grand Re-Opening Celebration of the completion of the remodeling project that has been on-going since the beginning of the year! The day will be filled with kid’s games, activities and Club tours for kids, parents and community members.

The Boys & Girls Club Day for Kids is a day set aside each year to celebrate and honor America’s children by spending meaningful time with them. It’s about celebrating kids - children, grandchildren or any child in need of mentoring, and is celebrated by Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. Adults are encouraged to make the BGC Day for Kids pledge a part of this special day. “We pledge to spend meaningful time together, to talk, to listen, to learn and to play, to share a moment, create a memory and make a kid’s day.”  Volunteers from the United Way Day of Caring will be helping with the games and activities, Boys & Girls Club Board Members will be grilling and serving hot dogs, chips and beverages for the guests and their families, making the day complete!

In conjunction with this Day for Kids event, the Club is very excited to announce its Grand Re-Opening, showing off all the construction improvements that have been completed and has made the Club more up to date for its members. The construction ranges from a remodeled lobby to heating/air conditioning units in the Computer Lab, the Games Room and the Learning Center. The lighting in these three areas has also been updated, replacing years old lighting fixtures, only of few of which actually worked, with modern recessed, indirect lights. The look is new, modern and clean, a wonderful environment for our members’ after school time.

BGC Day for Kids and the Grand Re-Opening will begin Saturday, September 25th at 10:00 am and run through 1:00 pm at the Santa Paula Clubhouse, 1400 E. Harvard Blvd., Santa Paula. Additional information can be obtained by calling the Club at 805-525-7910.

The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley provides after school programs for children ages 5 to 18, at the Club’s two locations; 1400 E. Harvard Blvd., Santa Paula and 565 First St., Fillmore. Club members pay a $25 annual fee to attend the Club, and no child is turned away for their inability to pay the membership fee. It costs the Club $560 per child annually to provide services for its members. The obvious gap between cost of services and membership is bridged by generous donations from local businesses, private donors and local and national grants. Donors interested in providing financial assistance to the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley are encouraged to contact the Club at 805-525-7910. All donations, regardless of amount, are gratefully appreciated.
