Back-to-School party planned
Students from low-income households will get a head start on back-to-school activities with help from local organizations.
The event, sponsored by No Square Theatre, Laguna Beach Police Assn., Laguna Beach Woman's Club, Laguna Resource Center, Susi Q Seniors and the Exchange Club, will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Aug. 27 at Legion Hall, 384 Legion St.
The White House and South Coast Cinemas will provide hot dogs and barbecue treats for attendees.
The community is asked to help get students of low income families "excited about school and off on the right foot" by donating backpacks, clothing, canned food, and school supplies such as pens, highlighters, notebooks and binders.
Items can be dropped off at Legion Hall or at the Chamber of Commerce at any time before the event.
Club members have their day at Angel Stadium
Eight Major League Baseball sluggers participated in the 2010 State Farm Home Run Derby and seven lucky Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach members got the opportunity to participate in the 2010 T-Ball Home Run Derby recently. The festivities took place outside Angels Stadium during the week of the All Star Game and provided an opportunity for Orange County Boys & Girls Clubs to raise money and learn fielding and hitting techniques from some of the games' best players.
