Time flies when you are having fun. So, it is hard to believe that the Burbank Boys and Girls Club has been open for 10 years. It seems like yesterday that the first few neighborhood children showed up for the free popcorn, hot dogs, soda at the ribbon-cutting, kick-off ceremony, Sept. 9, 1995. Over the last 10 years, I noticed how the organization had become a home away from home for a lot of its young members. Furthermore, I realized that these children were becoming more positive, confident and were also learning self worth, usefulness, teamwork and how to express themselves more effectively.

It was that opening that young and older celebrated Friday.

As the director of program services for the Boys and Girls Club, Santoyo will focus entirely on programs like education, technology recreation and arts and crafts without having to worry about fund-raising.

The start of the 10th annual Boys & Girls Club of the Harbor Area Westside branch golf tournament was anything but ordinary. About 50 golfers formed a circle just past the ladies tees on the first hole of Costa Mesa Country Club's Los Lagos course Monday. The goal was to toss a golf ball into a hole cut into the grass. The bouncing and rolling white balls reminded me of large hail stones from the fiercest of storms. The golf ball toss was a fun lead-in to the real work of the day: playing golf, cracking jokes and laughing.
