Every year, the Meridian Boys & Girls Club has a chance to team up with the City of Meridian, Idaho – Government for their annual Rake Up Meridian event. We have always enjoyed this service opportunity and this year was no exception. Our Keystone and Torch Clubs worked together this year to tackle some yards in our community and help some community members who are not able to rake for themselves.

After a quick breakfast at the Club, our members loaded up some rakes and headed out to make a difference in their community. In just 2 hours, they were able to clear 3 yards of the leaves that have been falling for weeks. It feels so good to know that we were able to help our community. Though it was hard work, our kids still had a ton of fun! Jumping in leaf piles, making leaf angels, having leaf fights, burying each other…all the fun things they could think of! The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time and are already excited for next fall!
