FALLBROOK – Dark meat or white meat? Which is your pleasure? For members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County who gathered around the table of delicious food provided by the club and their parents, they chose both…and then some. The kids loved it all!
“Every year we look forward to our Thanksgiving feast,” said CEO Allison Barclay. “The kids really enjoy it, and our board members also have fun serving the dinner. It’s a great day for all!”
The B&GC has much to be thankful for; through grants and donations, the Ingold Clubhouse pool is being resurfaced and will be filled with fresh water. Also, Ingold Clubhouse is building an ADA compliant ramp making the over 50-year-old building more accessible for its families.
“After several challenging years due to COVID, it is revitalizing to be making progress on these projects,” said B&GC Director of Operations Lisa Ware. “The construction is slated to be completed by the end of the school year so we will be ready for our summer swim programs!” B&GC has one of the only community pools in the area and it is reserved for club members only, no adults are permitted.
In addition to swim teams and swimming lessons during the summer, B&GC has basketball and indoor soccer programs. The club also offers daily homework assistance, a healthy dinner snack, art, music, healthy habits programs, and STEM activities among many other programs.
