Last week at the Columbus Boys and Girls Club 401 youths were served for an average of 69 per day and a high of 81 on Wednesday, Nov. 6. The current registered membership is 130.
Club hours are Monday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. and available to all youth ages six-18. The fall session is in full swing and the club will continue to take new members daily. Fall session membership is $50 per child. Stop by for a tour of the club.
Power Hour winners for the week were: Delaney Bietz (K-first grade), Alisson Martinez (second grade), Hailey Sanchez (third grade), Jace Hopkins (fourth grade), and Jesus Otero (fifth grade and up).
In the STEM program, club members did an experiment called “floating M&M’s.” Members took one M&M per cup of water and dropped it in to see it sink to the bottom. Once the color and shell dissolved from the candy, it floated to the top.
