The Boys & Girls Club will be open from 7 am to 6 pm several days in November when Shelby County schools are closed. Members and non-members ages 6 to 12 are welcome to come for days filled with fun with friends on November 11th, and November 23rd and 24th. The cost for each day is $5 which should be paid when you register your child for each of these school holidays. Kids should bring a lunch. We also will have snack time each afternoon and kids may buy something from our canteen or bring a snack from home. For more information, please call 205-665-4466.
Thanks to Coach Kayln Spatol and player Lauren Duckworth from the UM Lacrosse team for coming as part of our 'Standing in their Shoes' series. Though none of our members guessed (by looking at a pair of lacrosse shoes) that our guest would be a lacrosse player, they were excited to learn a bit about the sport and were quite amazed as they watched the two of them handle the ball in the "basket on a stick." The entire team will be back next week to help us run our first National Fitness Competition... with a lacrosse twist on serveral events!
Picture of the Month
Some of our members, staff and volunteers enjoyed a field trip to Carmike Theater at Patton Creek to participate in a 10-city Pajama Party preview of Dreamworks new movie Home coming out on March 27. This is a must-see movie that will have your toes tapping with a great big smile on your face!
