IMPORTANT PARENT REMINDERS

TRANSPORTATION: For any and all parents that will be sending their children to the Club this week for the first two days of school, you must complete a transportation form for your child to be bused from school to the Club (this form gets returned to your child’s school).  The forms are available through the district and are also posted on our website here in the left-hand column.

PARKING: The Club will be using a new entrance this school year in the interest of safety.  Any parents/guardians that are picking up a child(ren) after 4 PM must use the doors closest to the driveway when first pulling in from Sunset Blvd. (the doors closest to the large trees).  The parking lot on the right side of the driveway should be used as it is the closest to this entrance.

LABOR DAY: In following the school district calendar, the Club will be open this Wednesday and Thursday, but will be closed on Friday and Monday for the extended Labor Day holiday weekend.

Thank you very much for your cooperation and understanding in these matters and we are all looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Club, parents and kids alike!

The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore is pleased to announce that Fidelis Care has very generously donated 100 backpacks, along with some school supplies, to our Club!  The backpacks and supplies will be given to Club members in need as the school year begins.  This amazing opportunity was spearheaded by Club parent and active community member Dusti Wilson, among others.  The Club is incredibly grateful for this donation by Fidelis and are happy to be able to provide these materials to the youth of our community.  If your child will be attending the Club this year and you are interested in receiving a backpack and/or school supplies, please contact the Club at 926-2119 or via e-mail at bgc@lakeshorecsd.org.  Thank you again to Fidelis Care for making all of this possible!

Using a grant generously provided by Pizza Hut, the Club was able to purchase DJ equipment for older Club members to learn how to operate and use on a daily basis to crank some tunes for the kids and provide an even more fun atmosphere!  It will also be available for use during the Teen Nights that will be held during the colder months.  We are currently accepting membership applications (grades 2-12) for the upcoming school year beginning on September 2nd (first day of school).  Applications are available on our website to print, or you may stop by the Club for a copy.  Scholarship opportunities are available for those who qualify.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at 926-2119 or bgc@lakeshorecsd.org.  Be sure to ‘Like’ and follow us on Facebook too!

ALL NEW INDOOR/OUTDOOR GAME ADDED TO THE CLUB!

DSCF1316DSCF1315

New to the Club this coming September will be a game that’s catching on across the country called GaGa Ball!  This fast-paced game is fun for all ages, from the youngest of kids to the oldest of adults.  The Club is extremely excited to introduce the game to our returning members and new members alike, as many recreation facilities still don’t have one so we are very lucky.  It’s definitely sure to be a new Club favorite!  Check out the link below to see a sneak preview of what to expect.  We also have a few new surprises up our sleeves for this coming school year and we can’t wait to see all those smiling faces again =)  Don’t forget that the Club is currently accepting membership applications for children ages 7-18 (grades 2-12).  You can print one from our website or stop into the Club.  If you’d like more information, feel free to contact Justin Simet, Unit Director, at 926-2119 or bgc@lakeshorecsd.org.  Remember to follow us on Facebook too!

GaGa Ball In Action!

IT JUST TAKES ONE

Hello folks!  We here at the Boys & Girls Club hope you are having a relaxing, safe, and enjoyable summer so far.  We would like to let everyone know that the start to our annual individual giving campaign (It Just Takes One) is right around the corner.  If you are interested in donating to a worthy cause, please consider us as an option.  Nearly 40% of the Lake Shore Boys & Girls Club’s annual funding is derived from the Club’s own fundraising efforts, while almost 25% comes from thoughtful community members like yourselves.  Your generosity can directly help a child or children attend the Club that may otherwise not be able to afford it.  We are committed to keeping our membership costs as low as possible so we can provide programming and opportunities to members regardless of their financial circumstances.  Many employers are willing to match any donations that their employees make, so if you are planning on donating please refer to the list below by clicking the link to view a variety of local companies that participate in employee gift matching!  If you would like more information of any kind, please feel free to contact us at (716) 926-2119 or bgc@lakeshorecsd.org.  Thank you for as always for your continued support – the Club would not be what it is today without the wonderful community assistance that we receive.
