Puttin' on the Glitz
Members of our Torch and Keystone Clubs volunteered to help little ones make a holiday craft at Puttin' on the Glitz.
First Pickleball Tournament
On December 7, we hosted our first Pickleball Tournament. This fun, accessible sport is the latest fitness craze and we know it's here to stay. So, our Club is now offering open court time (fee applies) when kids are in school. Visit the Athletics page for more info.
On the week of Thanksgiving, our members got to compete in their very own Turkey Trot. You can imagine the fun that ensued.
October brought a lot of spooky fun to the Club, with Keystone's Haunted House and Torch Club's carnival. We had 10 creative game & activity stations in the gym for the carnival and the Teen Center was converted into a scary maze kids dared to walk through.
On August 21, Boys & Girls Club of the South Coast Area and 14 fellow Clubs partnered with the Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF) to host the second annual Greatness Amplified.
