PITTSFIELD — The Sebasticook Valley Boys and Girls Club has 12 days of activities planned for the remainder of July, said club President Mike Rhodes this week. “And we have some special events coming in August, including an end of the summer dance.”
Rhodes said that 85 area children currently belong to the SVBGC. “But we are trying to draw more teen-agers,” he said.
Throughout the month, bus trips to the indoor pool at the Waterville Boys and Girls Club will be offered each Monday. Swimmers should meet at the Vickery Gym at 1:15 p.m. Swimming will be from 2-3 p.m. and the bus should return to Vickery by 3:45. $1 per child will be charged to cover the cost of the trip.
Each Tuesday, Central Maine Gymnastics will be held at the First Congregational Church on Park Street from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Gymnastics, trampoline, fitness and dance will be offered each Thursday at Up Country Dance and Fitness on Route 100 in Detroit. The hours are 1-2:30 p.m.
Open sports time will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, July 16, and Friday, July 30, at Manson Park. In case of rain, sports activities will be moved to the Parks Gym at Maine Central Institute.
From 6-8 p.m. Friday, July 23, club members and others will be working on the SVBGC’s float to be entered the next day in the Central Maine Egg Festival parade. Those who wish to help should meet at Hancock Lumber.
Except for the Monday bus trips, all SVBGC activities are free. For more information, call 487-3451 or 487-3786.
