Blue Cross Blue Shield Visits BGCD for Service Day: As part of their Company-wide Service Day, 40 employees from Blue Cross Blue Shield spent a day at BGCD assisting with facility improvements. The volunteers painted the lobby and stairwell of the Marr Clubhouse and delivered new wood chips to both outdoor playgrounds.

To support the project Blue Cross Blue Shield donated $5,000 to purchase supplies and materials. Thanks to all of the Blue Cross Blue Shield employees who took part and to our project leads, Tania, Jackie and Crea for their leadership.

FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE

MFA Community Arts Partnership Kicks-off: Once again, BGCD will be one of 10 partner agencies taking part in the Community Arts Initiative with the Museum of Fine Arts. The new year kicked off with an introductory class with this year’s Artist Project Lead, Sneha Shrestha. Participating members were introduced to the project, which will include four follow-up visits to the Museum.

During the visits our members will continue to work on their piece of the project. The following months will see all of the other participating agencies taking turns working on the project through it’s completion and installation in the Museum in May, 2019. In addition to the Artist Project the partnership includes 10 Artful Adventure trips to the Museum, Free Family Memberships, and the chance to work on special projects. Our thanks to the Museum of Fine Arts!
