Thank You To Our Local Sports Teams!
We would like to extend a big thank you out to the local sports teams that work the kids into their very busy schedules.

A team’s success is dependent on their ability to work together to achieve a common goal. The same can be said for just about anything one does in life. Instilling in children the importance of leveraging their strengths, for the betterment of the team, is a valuable life skill.

Throwback Winter 2014-15

Throwback Winter 2014-15
As the days get longer and the sun starts to feel warm again, I can’t help but think back on the winter months and all the memories that we made.
 
The more than average snowfall may of gotten old fast for us adults, but snow filled fun kept the kids busy all winter long.

We got to go skating and sliding, and there were many snowmen made.

Where Is My Ponytail!

Where Is My Ponytail!
There are numerous foundations in Canada to whom people can donate their hair in order to make natural wigs for cancer patients.

As soon as one of our young Club members, Samantha McKenzie, heard about this amazing opportunity, she didn’t hesitate to step up to the challenge.

After Samantha made such a generous donation, she came to the Boys and Girls Club sporting her new, much shorter, hair style. Leaders questioned her on what convinced her to make such a drastic change and she happily replied, “I donated my hair to cancer and they cut off my whole ponytail!”

Fun Time At The Aquatic Center

Fun Time At The Aquatic Center
Last month Hillsborough Drop In took a trip to the Pat Crossman Memorial Aquatic Centre, a 25-metre, six-lane pool open to the public in Riverview.

We had a blast jumping off the diving board into the deep end and making rafts with the numerous foam water toys that they supplied. The day was filled with smiles and laughter, and most importantly, the children got a ton of exercise.
 
We can’t wait to go back!

The Invention Kit: MaKey MaKey

The Invention Kit: MaKey MaKey

The Riverview Rogers Raising the Grade program has found a fun interactive way to explore concepts like conductivity, electrical circuits and input/output systems for computers by using an invention kit called MaKey MaKey and some old school video games.

While using the invention kit, members could send button inputs to a computer by completing an electrical circuit with certain parts of the chip. Members used Play-Doh, pencils, paperclips and cups of water to create a remote control that could play old Nintendo games.
