United Boys & Girls Club’s Day for Kids is happening Saturday, Sept. 8, 10 am.-4 p.m. at its Goleta Club, 5701 Hollister Ave., and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at its Buellton site.

Day for Kids is a national celebration where Boys & Girls Clubs open their doors to everyone for free.

Parents and youngsters are urged to stop by the Buellton or Goleta club to enjoy a day of activities and see what it’s like to be a club kid.

“We are hosting a Carnival Day with jumpers, games, photo booth, potluck, face-painting and more,” said Veronica Lopez, Goleta club director. “Parents are welcomed along with any kids who aren’t a member.”

“I look forward to seeing so many new faces and their parents enjoying their first visit to our Goleta Club and our Buellton Club,” said Michael Baker, CEO.

United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County provides young people and youth with a fun, safe place to go after school and during the summer.

United Boys & Girls Clubs provides tutoring, field trips, hot meals, and extra-curricular activities such as flag football, soccer and basketball.

“I love this day,” Lopez said. “We have games all day, and the parents have the opportunity to play soccer with their kids. The kids enjoy meeting new friends, and they are proud to show their club to visitors.”

For more information or questions, contact club director Amanda Hauptmann, 805-686-4707.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
