BGCSMV Clubs Participate in National Lights On

Look at these happy faces from our El Camino clubsite in Santa Maria! In partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Santa Maria Bonita School District and The Afterschool Alliance, Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley participated in the National Lights On Afterschool project. These photos represent only one of our seven school-based clubsites that participated in the project. Special thanks to Debbie & Debbie Adam for donating the pumpkins for our carving contest!

Over one million people nationwide gathered today to celebrate Lights On Afterschool – the ONLY national celebration of after school programs and everything they do for students, families, and communities. #LightsOnAfterschool
