Opening Day Postponed - Fields are still too WET!



Unfortunately due to the impact of the recent string of rain storms, BGCRE fields conditions are not yet playable so we have had to postpone Opening Day until next week.
All other practices and games on the schedule starting Monday will remain as is and can be played. Just the
Picture day will also be rescheduled.
Team websites will be updated and coaches will communicate any additional info to their teams.

Rock the Night Away Fundraiser a Success!
Dear Friends of the Boys & Girls Club of Redding-Easton (BGCRE), 
It is with much gratitude that this note comes to you.  Thank you!  Thank you, to all of you who contributed to the success of our Rock The Night Away event which we held at the Redding Country Club on March 24. We raised more than $20,000 to help maintain our facility, fund our programs, and keep our registration fees reasonable. And a great, fun time was had by all who attended!
Whether you were part of our committee, part of the band, an event sponsor, an attendee of the event, someone who donated an item to our silent auction, or someone who purchased a raffle ticket we thank you for contributing to our cause.  Some of you were all of the above and that is what makes the BGCRE community so very special.  
It is the mission of the BGCRE to, "To enable the young people of Redding and Easton, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens, and to be a positive force for good in our communities." If you are interested in our programs please go to  www.BGCRE.net and get involved!  
Our very best,
