LiveGirlTalk

LiveGirlTalk
We are excited to announce a new program coming in February. LiveGirlTalk is a facilitated discussion group for middle school girls designed to empower and foster self-confidence and allow for genuine self-expression through sharing and creative activity. The small group (max. 15) meets weekly with a certified teacher/facilitator to share concerns and interests, thus providing an opportunity to connect with other girls and talk in a safe environment without judgment. The program will run on Wednesdays at the BGCRE Clubhouse, beginning 2/8 through 4/26 for 10 weeks (excluding school breaks). Meetings will run from 4:15pm-5:30pm. There is no cost to participate in this program other than a current BGCRE membership.

For more information about the program see LiveGirlTalk Overview. For more information regarding our partner in delivering the program, LiveGirl, Inc, see  GoLiveGirl.com. To register for the program please see LiveGirlTalk Registration

Snow Shoveling for Seniors

Snow Shoveling for Seniors 
The Boys & Girls Club of Redding-Easton’s Keystone Club again this year is offering a snow-shoveling service for the seniors of Redding and Easton. Members from the Keystone Club will shovel pathways and decks free of charge in order to aid those seniors who cannot do this themselves.

If you would like to have a Keystoner assist getting the snow off your walkways this winter, please contact Alice Smith, the assistant to the First Selectman Julia Pemberton at 203-938-2002.

The Keystoners will then be in touch and assign a person to help you when the snow comes. You will receive a call the night before to confirm the date and time of the shoveling.

Tree Musketeers

Tree Musketeers
Members of the Keystone Club gathered at the Boys & Girls Club clubhouse Sunday, November 20th and decorated hundreds of Christmas tree ornaments. This is part of an effort with Redding Social Services, whereby the ornaments will get donated and delivered to a few area families in need this holiday season. Project leaders are having 2-3 Christmas trees donated from local tree farms to go along with the newly decorated ornaments.

The Club has been doing this initiative for the last several years and the members have a great time gathering together to create the ornaments and feel great about the end result. This year's project leaders were: Jessica Docimascolo and Jess Matsuoka.

Thank You to all Golfers and Volunteers

Thank You to all Golfers and Volunteers
The 29th Annual Golf Outing to Support the BGCRE took place on Monday October 3rd. It was a great success with over 70 golfers playing a round at The Redding Country Club. The weather was beautiful and it seemed like every golfer had a great round (at least that is what everyone claimed during the dinner reception).

The winning foursome with a scramble score of 62 on a match of cards was: Marc Nizzardo, Tom Keneally, Chris Jones, and Tim Malay. We also had a first for our Golf Outing (at least in recent memory) - Brian Fitzgerald scored a hole-in-one on the 186-yard par 3 13th hole!

Thanks to everyone for making this our most successful fundraiser of the year.
