Season of Giving is in La Conner

Club members helped paint this backdrop for December Family Night.

The Season of Giving is in La Conner stores this Sunday, as more than 30 stores and restaurants donate 10 percent of sales to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County. La Conner club kids are also enjoying their own season of giving by doing paintings for the La Conner Food Bank donation boxes and visiting at the La Conner Retirement Inn.

Christmas Party

Thank you so much to Randell S. Linde & Associates and Ameriprise Financial for sponsoring an incredible Christmas Party for the members of the Mt. Vernon Boys & Girls Club yesterday! Club members were able to enjoy so many fun and exciting activities including sugar cookie decorating, ornament making and a Reindeer bucket craft that they were able to fill full of candy! Our teens even got a chance to make personalized t-shirts!

 

But of course the best part of the day was when Santa stopped by for a visit and photos!!!

 

From the bottom of our kids’ hearts we thank you and want to wish you Happy Holidays!

 

Thank you to Little Caesar’s for all the yummy pizza too!!!
