Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous E-Newsletter



2018
Dear Parents and Guardians of the Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous:
 Happy New Year!

 
The the Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous hope everyone has had a peaceful holiday vacation and we are all excited to see our members back at the Club. We are looking forward to starting the new year with exciting programs   (see schedule below with our new winter hours).
 
One of our programs will be the Supper Club. We will be providing meals, some prepared by our members during their cooking class and others prepared by our talented staff. We will also have guest Chef's teaching our members a variety of culinary skills. 
This is in addition to our regular after school snacks. 

Meals will be served from 6:15 to 6:45. We ask that you let us know if your child will be joining us for the Supper program so we know how much food to make.


Reminder: Monday, January 15, is Martin Luther King, Jr., Day and there will be no school. The Club will be opened 1 to 7pm.   

If you have any questions about our programs or anything about the Club please don't hesitate to ask me or any of our dedicated staff.

Wishing us all a Great New Year with  Great Futures  for the youth in our county.


Sincerely,

Noam Zimin, Executive Director
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Siskiyous

No matter if it is 1 hour a week, 4 hours every day, or even just something special for 1 time only, Boys & Girls Club volunteers make a huge impact on Members.

AcrossTheMovement


Boys & Girls Clubs is a Global Movement, Meeting Local Needs!   
Boys & Girls Clubs serve more than 4 MILLION youth every year, in over 4,200 independent organizations across the country, and on military installations around the world. This type of National to Local relationship gives Clubs the strength of a vast network of resources, talent, knowledge, and branding, while maintaining the flexibility to meet the incredibly diverse needs of every neighborhood where Clubs are located. With millions of youth reached every year, and hundreds of millions that have walked through Club doors since the first Club opened in 1860, Boys & Girls Clubs truly are life changing places.
