BGCD and Elevate Youth Host Monthly Outdoor Adventures: Following on the heels of two Hiking/ Climbing trips in September, BGCD and Elevate Youth are using the month of October to expose members to Horseback Riding. The first of two trips took part this past Tuesday at the Blazing Saddles program in Randolph. Members learned how to care for and feed the horses, and then set out on rides. A fantastic time was had by all!

Later this month members from our Denney Center Clubhouse will set out on their trip. Thanks to Elevate Youth for their efforts to engage our members in these exciting outdoor adventures!

To learn more about this program or other opportunities at the Club, please contact Mike Joyce at mjoyce@bgcdorchester.org.

FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE

BGCD Partners with Local Ninety Nine Restaurants: It’s BGCD month at your local Ninety Nine Restaurants! Be sure to stop by Ninety Nine Restaurant locations in Braintree and Quincy this month because every Sunday in October, kids eat free! Plus you can take the opportunity to help support our Clubhouses with awesome raffles, bake-sales and more!

In addition to the funds raised from this partnership, we are also looking forward to our annual ceremony held at the Ninety Nine Restaurant in Quincy honoring our Youth of the Year. The member is named in the spring and the ceremony will recognize a youth who works incredibly hard throughout the year and gives them the chance to receive some much deserved recognition for their work in the community. We are grateful to the Ninety Nine Restaurant for providing our members with these unique opportunities.
