The Founders Day open house at the Boys & Girls Club brought out the crowd. More than 350 people converged to help the club celebrate their 50th anniversary while participating in games, activities, and all the fun the club has to offer. Guests feasted on a delicious lunch courtesy of Mary’s Pizza Shack, Sonoma Market, Pop Chips, Clover Stornetta, Harvey’s Gourmet Mini Donuts, and Pepsi. The Club served popcorn and snow cones to the enthusiastic crowd.
A highlight of the day: one original founder, Helen Fernandez, was on hand to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for her 50 years of service to the Club.
