Nick Feare- Youth of the month
 
Now a freshman in high school, Nick has been Youth/Member of the month for multiple consecutive years. He is here every day after school and is even now a part-time employee selling snacks out of the beloved Snack Shack.
Even before he was hired as an official staff member, he was always helpful around the Club. Cleaning dishes leftover the Culinary Club, taking charge of locker-passes, and helping set up for almost all of our special events.
Nick spent last summer as a Counselor in Training at NBGC Summer Camp. He went above and beyond every day. He already is such a valued addition to our team and we look forward to the day that he can be a Summer Camp Counselor here.

What's happening
 
It's been a great first month at the Club! Members are enjoying all the  activities the Club has to offer! The Learning Center has been busy with members working on homework, the Art Room is constantly filled with members working on amazing art projects, and the Games Room is packed with members challenging each other in various tournaments. With the weather cooling off, members are enjoying playing games outside. It's definitely starting to feel like Fall! The Teen Room is full of active teenagers hanging out with their friends.
 
Athletics are heating up! Football has started and we've already seen some incredible games. Not only have we seen great competition, the sportsmanship has been awesome! Come out and watch some great football!
