Fall Festivities

We love FALL at the Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County!

Our Boys & Girls Club preschool students took their first Field Trip. Riding the school bus to Terhune Orchards was so exciting for them! The students also enjoyed petting the animals, bicycling, an outdoor picnic and picking apples.

Boys & Girls Club middle school students spent one day a week this fall with the Trenton Circus Squad. Students learned physical techniques, life skills and building trust among each other. It is a great experience that is filled with physical activity, learning and laughter.

Our last outdoor adventure in garden before the weather turned cold was bittersweet. The kids planted bulbs, like garlic, as the leaves fell around our BGC Mercer Outdoor Education Center.

What great ways to promote healthy eating and exercise during the fall!
