Tuesday, April 10: OPEN THE DOOR TO CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP Open the door to CLD as we beautify and feed our community. Youth members will clean and decorate their sites, and the
teen members will designate a local park and give it a mini makeover. Both groups will be completing acts of service and
showing pride in their community. Additionally, canned food drives will be held throughout the month of March at all school
sites, and will conclude with a “CANstruction” competition on April 10th. Each site will upload their CANstructions to
BGCTM’s Facebook page for a community vote. The winner will win a site pizza party!

and a FREE carnival with games, prizes, music. Community volunteers will get to channel their inner child as they hang
with our members, assisting with games and prize selection! Dinner will be served to all in attendance.
