    Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley Dedicates New John L. Notter Family Boys & Girls Club during Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

    Thousand Oaks, CA – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley (BGCGCV) introduced the John L. Notter Family Boys & Girls Club in Thousand Oaks to the community during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, March 20 at the club located on the campus of Redwood Middle School, 233 W. Gainsborough Road in Thousand Oaks.

    The event attracted approximately 120 individuals who toured the facility and listened to presentations by officials who shared the exciting plans for the John L. Notter Family Boys & Girls Club.

    The transformation of the Notter Club was accomplished through a Capital Campaign and strategic plan initiated by the BGCGCV. Campaign funds were used to build a brand new 8,000-square foot facility, expanding the reach of the former Redwood Boys & Girls Club, and enabling the provision of additional programs and activities for youth. 

    Prior to the expansion, the Redwood Club operated out of two bungalows that had no bathroom facilities and were at capacity. The new facility includes a Club Lobby/Reception Area, Member Cubby Area, Activities and Games Room, Media Center, Multi-purpose Room, Recreation Courtyard, Food Court, Arts Center, Art Gallery, Mentoring Center, Learning/Homework Center, Technology Center, Music Center & Nutrition Center.

    The club will now be able to serve three times the number of members that the former building was able to accommodate. Programming will be available to the over 800 middle school students at Redwood Middle School, as well as the over 2,000 elementary school students throughout Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park and Westlake Village.

    Several other community leaders stepped up to join Mr. John L. Notter to take the lead in making this club a reality through room naming opportunities. They include the Dr. Richard Grossman Community Foundation; Steven Dorfman; Sherwood Country Club Charitable Foundation; Cal & Marje Johnston; WDC Kitchen & Bath; Brent & Jodi Flynn-Taco Bell; Marlene & Bruce Kanter; The Bollenbach Family; Bob & Dagmar Bocchi; Linda & David Catlin; Richard & Joanie Young and Hope & Jim Olsen. Four additional rooms are available for sponsorship opportunities including the Arts Area, Games & Activities Center, Media Center, and Multipurpose Room.

    To inquire about sponsorships or for more information on the Notter Boys & Girls Club, call the BGCCGV at 818-706-0905.
