SOAK THE STAFF DAY THIS THURSDAY!

Attention Club families:

This Thursday, May 26th the Club will be holding its “Soak the Staff Day” to reward our members that participated in the National Boys & Girls Club survey.  Each year, Boys & Girls Clubs of America invites clubs and members throughout the country to partake in an online survey to poll our youth and get their opinions about the Club, the Club staff, the activities run, and even their own lives and interests, all with the focus and key goal of improving the Clubs and what we offer.  To thank the kids that took time to participate in the survey, the members have been awarded a chance to soak a staff member of their choice!  The kids have each selected their victims and will be able to dump a bucket of water on the selected staff.  If your child participated in the survey, make sure they are able to take advantage of his/her opportunity by attending the Club on Thursday.  Thank you very much for your cooperation!

Please note: This activity will be weather-dependent, so a rain date may need to be planned for the following week if need be.

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB OFF AND RUNNING!

Our new Photography Club has kicked off and the kids have been busy snapping photos!  Thanks to Pizza Hut and their “Raising Dough for Kids” campaign, the Club received a generous grant to operate our very own Photography Club that has started meeting weekly.  The course is designed for kids (5th grade and up) to become familiar with the basics of photography and photo equipment and some principles of the artistry behind it.  It also gives them a chance to use the camera kit provided by the grant to take photos, edit them using computer software, and actually print them to keep and take home.  The members will be roaming the school/building grounds under staff supervision to broaden their artistic horizons! The kids also have the opportunity to sign out the cameras to take home, use, and return, simultaneously learning responsibility in properly caring for the equipment.  Stay tuned for more Photography Club updates!  If you or someone you know is interested in having your child attend the Club, or for more information, please contact us at 926-2119, bgc@lakeshorecsd.org, www.bgclakeshore.org, or visit us on Facebook (Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore).

Pictured are some of our Photography Club members that participated in roaming the Club to snap the most unique image they could capture.

On SATURDAY, MAY 7th at 9:00 AM, Evangola State Park will be participating in “I Love My Park Day”.  This is an exciting statewide event, organized by Parks & Trails NY and the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and local Friends groups, to celebrate and enhance NY’s parks and historic sites and bring visibility to the entire park system and its needs.  Our portion of the event will likely last until about 11:30 AM.

The Boys & Girls Club has the opportunity to participate by helping install blue bird boxes (bird houses) that our kids (including our Nature Club) have worked on assembling here at the Club.  The tools will be provided – all we need is for you and your children to show up and lend a helping hand!  This is a wonderful chance for kids to see how they can make a simple, yet powerful impact on the state of wildlife here in our own prized park.

We strongly encourage anyone interested to come help out!  Transportation will NOT be provided, so we do ask that parents stay and enjoy the event with their kids.  Food will be provided following the event’s conclusion.  If you know of anyone else that might be interested, please spread the word.  If you would like to participate and attend this event, a SIGN-UP SHEET WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE FRONT DESKWe would like to have a rough head count, as would the park service.  There will be other groups volunteering too, including the Boys Scouts of America, AmeriCorps, and Cradle Beach, so we would love to have good representation on behalf of the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore.  If you have further questions, please contact Justin Simet (Unit Director) at 926-2119.

The Club needs a bit of an extra hand for this weekend’s Great Outdoor Adventure Raffle.  We are looking for a few volunteers willing to help with walking the floor and selling 50/50 and side raffle tickets from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.  If you are interested or know someone that is, please contact us at 926-2119.  Thank you!
