Spring has sprung here at the Boys & Girls Club of Placer County. After a rainy winter, March roared in with plenty of warm weather and sunshine, bringing with it more opportunities for Club Members and Staff to get outside and celebrate spring. Club Members at EV Cain Middle school participated in a week celebration of the spring equinox, making sun dials and terrariums. Members at Rock Creek went on nature walks to plant wildflowers in the fields near Rock Creek Elementary.
The Club’s Youth of the Year celebration was the absolute highlight of March!
After weeks of training and a rigorous selection process, five very special young ladies were awarded Youth of the Year and given the opportunity to share their Club story with attendees at the celebration. They did a phenomenal job! Guests were treated to a Taiko Japanese-style drum performance that brought down the house. The event featured kid-made desserts from each of our Club program sites. Club sites also submitted art work to hang for our first art show. Members of the E.V. Cain Torch Club learned the finer points of matting artwork by carefully selecting mat board for each piece. Club Members across all sites collaborated on an outstanding wire quilt. It was a wonderful celebration of the Club’s Youth and Great Futures at the Club!
