Open House fun at the SW Club

A great time was had by the 115 people who attended the Carnival Family Night Open House at the Sedro-Woolley Boys & Girls Club on May 23rd! Families got to enjoy face painting, bingo, cookie decorating, juggling, and Blossom the Clown was a hit as she wowed the kids with her balloon animal skills! Kids and parents worked to go through all the booths to enter to win fun prizes.

The Club honored the North Cascades Health Council for their support since the Club opened in 2001. Since 2005, NCHC has donated more than $30,000 in support of the Healthy Lifestyles Programs and Initiatives provided at the SW Boys & Girls Club. Council President Amy Collins from the SW School District accepted the honor at the event. “We have positively impacted our community in so many ways.  It is such a blessing to be able to give to the children and staff at Boys & Girls Club,” stated Collins, a Guidance Counselor with the SW Schools. Also in attendance was Dianne and Mike  Crawford, founders of the North Cascades Health Council, and Rose Torset, North Cascades Health Council Member.

The Teen of the Month honor went to Tiffany Steuer, 17, member since 2007. Homework and Reading Stars for the month of May were Aaron Elder and Shaely Spilker.
