The Boys and Girls Club of Refugio County, operating under the umbrella of the Beeville Boys and Girls Club is not for profit organization providing services and programs for the children of this county ages six to 18.
During the school year we offer after-school care, homework tutoring, arts and crafts and an organized basketball league. In the summer, the club is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with meals, planned recreation and enriching out-of-town field trips.
“We feel that the Boys and Girls Club provides children with a safe place to spend their time,” said Nan Linney, board member.
The Boys and Girls Club is funded through grants and donations.
“The Summer Gala is our major fund raiser and we appreciate the support the community gives us at this time,” Linney said. “Come on out and join us Aug. 25.”
