It is incredible to think that we have only a few days of 2015 left and we are already making plans for next summer and beyond. However before we rush off into 2016 we’d like to take a minute to remember some of the fantastic programs, events and staff of 2015.
A highlight of this year has been the rekindling of partnerships with other organizations in town. Working with SOS Outreach gave us two ski/ride days at Kirkwood in April, an event that we will be repeating during Spring Break 2016. The Humane Society introduced their ‘Reading with my Buddy’ program at Al Tahoe and Live Violence Free have led a number of workshops and events for our teens. We have also worked with the Forest Service, TRPA, TINS and many others. We are also so grateful for the continued partnership with LTUSD and all the schools that our Members belong to.
Members have volunteered at the Wooden Boat Show, the Half Rock and the Lake Tahoe Marathon. They have gone swimming, ice skating, golfing and on over 20 field trips. We’ve had Adventure Camps, Coding Camps, a trip to Yosemite and numerous excursions to the beach.
We have also been blessed with incredible help and support from the Community. The Ice Arena continues to provide regular opportunities for our members to skate; American Century are major donors through the Celebrity Golf Tournament at Edgewood Tahoe and Chimayo Grill has just chosen BGCLT to be their local charity of choice. Other major donors have included US Bank, Edgewood Tahoe and Parker Development. However special mention must go to Vail for all their amazing work and generosity towards the Club this year. As well as a grant to purchase our adventure gear and a BMX STEM program, Vail also made the Club recipients of the Vail Epic Promise Day and put 300 employees to work at the Club repairing, building, organizing and decorating. They also donated our Christmas gift to our members and Kirkwood have made the Club their Holiday charity.
2016 brings much to look forward to with continued growth and high quality programs for our members. Thank you for being a part of the Club’s success in 2015 and we wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.
