Friday, August 21, 2020

Welcome to post #86 and our last day of Club at Home! We’ve had a fantastic five weeks of summer programming; it’s been so fun to have our members back in our Clubs, finding new ways to be together in person while working hard to keep everyone safe. With summer programs ending today, BGCB staff and Club at Home will be taking a break for the next few weeks. We’ll see you all in the fall! 

Today, find activities for members across all age groups, including piano lessons, an original short film, a card game tutorial, a podcast, and rebus puzzles.
