~Say Goodbye to Mr. Parker

Mr. Parker has been working with Boys & Girls Clubs for over 40 years. He is retiring this December. We are honoring him and his service to BGCA and especially to the Tipton Club at the Community Holiday Open House. This event will be Thursday, December 14th from 4:00-6:00 pm at the Boys & Girls Club. Make sure you come see all the kids have worked on to honor and say goodbye to Dick.


What Happened?


~Members learned and wrote about animals such as turkeys and reindeer in Informers.


~In STEM, members learned about how sand is formed on all types of beaches and made their own out of various materials, including candy.
