2020 Nutrilife golf classic golf-a-thon update

Due to travel concerns and social distancing guidelines, this year’s Nutrilite Golf Classic will follow a modified Golf-A-Thon style format.

Golf-A-Thons (or Golf Marathons) have been around for almost 150 years and are similar to other athletic competitions but with one added element: GOLF!  With a golf marathon there are no foursomes, it’s just every golfer for themselves playing as many holes as possible, all to support our Virtual Programming for the over 1,000 youth, teens, and families we continue to serve remotely during the pandemic.

Be safe, be smart, be positive, and continue to BE GREAT.

On Friday, February 7, our Keystone Teen Leadership group spent time with residents of Rowntree Gardens, a senior living community located in the City of Stanton.

From L to R: Eric Mulya, Kathleen Green, CEO Todd Trout, Board Vice President Wayne King, Program Director Luz Trout, & Board Treasurer Gary Green

On Friday, February 7, 2020, our Board Vice President Wayne King received the 2020 EDDY Award for his dedication and service to our Club.

Wayne has been involved with our Club for the past 12 years. Wayne often shares his story: “As a single father, I needed a safe place for my twin boys while at work, and someone recommended I go check out the Club.”

Seeing the Club’s positive effect in his son’s lives, Wayne soon joined the Board of Directors. He has served as Board Treasurer, Board Vice President, and Board President. Wayne has been an instrumental supporter for the Club Woodshop and Teen Programs, as well as serving on the Finance Committee for the past 7 years.

Wayne’s sons have been involved in the Club Keystone Teen Leadership Program as well as members on Jr. Staff. Currently, his son Andrew is an active military personnel serving in the Military Police for the United States Marine Corps. His son, Nick, currently works at Ganahl Lumber Buena Park and is training for future employment as a fire fighter.

On Monday, January 20, we held our Keystone Club Officer Retreat at the Disneyland Resort. Our Keystone Officers and select Staff were able to plan the events for the upcoming year, go on a few rides, and hang out with a cast of characters.

2019 GOLD STANDARD ATTENDANCE AND PROGRAMMATIC EXCELLENCE AWARD

In September, the Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park was recognized by Boys & Girls Clubs of America for “exceptional program growth and excellence”. The Gold Level Award was presented to Club CEO Todd Trout by Boys & Girls Clubs of America President Jim Clark. Bridgestone Tires, a national partner, presented our Club with a $12,000 award to further our growth and program needs. It was such an honor to receive the Gold Standard Award out of 1,000 clubs in the Pacific West region. Structured activities, such as our wood shop, rock climbing/rock wall program, fine arts club, and Teen Leadership and Money Management program are all leading the way in the services we offer over 1,000 youth and teens every day.
