Our Open House and Club Showcase on Friday was a success! If you did not come out, then you definitely missed out! Do not worry though, here is a little recap of all that happened during the showcase:
We started our Open House by allowing the parents to go and find their members. This was a way for parents to see what their kids work on and which rooms they spend most time in. Some of our members were completely surprised when they saw their parents standing next to them. Almost all were extremely excited to show off all the work that they do and have completed throughout the different rooms.
Outside of every room, there was a program description board that had information about all the different programs that take place in that room. Our parents were able to gain some insight into what each of our staff plans for our members everyday.
Our members and their parents spent time playing some pool in the Games room, eating at the snack bar, and hanging out with each other in around the Club. At around 6:00pm everyone headed over to the Gym for our Club showcase!
To start off the showcase, Wendy, our Jr. Youth of the Year, introduced Ms. G, who announced some National Fine Arts participants and finalists. We then went on to our first two performances of the night. Our awesome member Ori did an amazing job playing "The Night Chicago Died" on the drums. This was followed by our Little Rascals who did their Just Dance choreography to that POWER by Justin Bieber Ft. will.i.am.
Next Ms. G gave out her OC Fair Imaginology awards and then our awesome member Anaya rocked out to Poker Face by Lady Gaga! We continued with out awards by announcing our Youth of the Years for each room:
