"The Boys & Girls Club of the Great Lakes Bay Region"
with Ginger Drzewicki, Jerry Gomez and Ray Garcia
1:00pm
 
 

  The Boys Club opened its doors on Adams Street in 1957 under the supervision of the Bay City Police Department. In the 1970's, the Club moved into the Quonset huts at their current location, 300 West Lafayette Avenue, known as the Bay City Boys Club. Over the decades, the organization has seen remarkable growth in the number of children served. In 1991, Boys Clubs of America changed their name to Boys & Girls Clubs, allowing girls in common membership.

  Boys & Girls Clubs of the Great Lakes Bay Region has been in operation for over five decades. The organization today runs programs in six facilities: the original Bay City Unit; Essexville Unit (since 2001), Pinconning Unit (since 2001), Saginaw and Carrollton Units (since 2011) and KidsCampUs (since 2017).

  Join CEO Ginger Drzewicki and Directors Jerry Gomez and Ray Garcia for a look at the history of the Club to today’s programs and services.

Second Saturday

"The History of the River of Time"

with Jan Rau

1:00pm

 

  River of Time may be well known in 2018, but in 1991 it was a gamble.  In 1990 a group of reenactors met at the Bay Democrat Press and brainstormed on bringing living history to Bay City. 

  Take a walk down memory lane with event chairperson Jan Rau, as she shares the development and growth of this popular event that draws re-enactors from all over the country to dress, work and live as people did from several eras in Michigan's past.
