A special “thank you” to Vicki Frantz, BGCDT Board Member and Marketing Manager w/ Buffalo Wild Wings (KPW Management), for a fun-filled “BWW Sponsor Day” on Saturday, Sept. 26.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township continues to grow into one of the strongest Board of Directors’ in the Fox Valley. At the Sept. 2015 BGCDT Board Meeting, two new members were appointed to the Board, marking a significant achievement of 30 active Board Members.
One of the most creative programs offered at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township is our annual “Twin Day”. Club members are encouraged to dress like the Staff and the Club members actually vote on the best “Twin Day” matches! The Club Members and Staff both work together and really get into “character” for this special day.
On Saturday, Sept. 19th the Carpentersville Fire Department celebrated their 100th Anniversary with a parade, barbeque and Open House at Fire Station 91. As a proud community partner, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township participated in the parade, as our Club members eagerly distributed candy and treats to parade viewers. A special appearance by the BGCDT Club Mascot, “Percy”, highlighted the morning parade!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township kicked off a brand new school year on Tuesday, August 18th. Nearly 1,000 Club members greeted our staff that first day with smiles, hope and anticipation for an exciting school year, however many of our Club members come to us armed with little supplies for the new school year, often missing the most basic of school supplies.
Thank you to Steve Ehardt (BGCDT Board Member) and our tremendous friends, supporters and employees at PepsiCo facility in Barrington, IL for selecting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township as the recipient of the 50 for 50 Community Giveback grant in the amount of $50,000!
