Last updated 4/1/2019 at 2:32pm
FALLBROOK – Members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County spent their afternoon Tuesday, March 19, on Main Avenue working to beautify the streets of Fallbrook. With gloves, brooms and trash bags in hand, they picked up every piece of trash in sight.
Club members also used the time to deliver decorative tins with candies to businesses downtown, who have supported the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, as a thank you and to invite them to join the club for their Boys & Girls Club week. Boys & Girls Club week which kicks off April 8 and is an opportunity for the community to visit and see for themselves all the fun that happens every day at the club.
"For a whole week we open our doors to celebrate our amazing staff and club members, and to share some of the excitement that happens here," Allison Barclay, the CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, said. "We invite everyone in the community to join us at our Open House April 8, starting at 4 p.m. to help us kick off our Boys & Girls Club week."
In addition to their Open House, the club will also host an art exhibit Tuesday, April 9, with each entry created by a club member. Club members will be participating in a healthy cooking challenge, April 10, where they will test their cooking skills as they make custom pancakes. Parents and friends are invited April 11, to come and cheer on members as they participate in the club's talent showcase. The festivities conclude Friday with a barbecue and dodgeball tournament.
