The KYC now has twelve brand new bikes! Thank you to the Cate Fund for a generous grant to fund the purchase and to Gildford, NH Walmart for a kind discount! We look forward to years of ridding with our KYC members!
Everyone at the KYC would like to express a huge thank you to DF Richard Energy for their generous donation for program support! Earlier this week Richard presented the donation to KYC Board of Directors President, Barbara Lobdell and KYC Executive Director, Pam Sweeney.
Thank you so much to New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and Miles Hodsdon Vernon Foundation for generous support of our operations. These contributions go a long way in supporting our mission to serve local youth!
Last week, we saw our members off for their vacations with a holiday celebration!
We were able to offer pizza from Louis’ Pizza. The pizza was provided by a donation from one of our food donors! Thank you! Louis offered free drinks! Thanks!
Each member got a gift as our token of appreciation for them! The blanket came from Project Blanket, a donation facilitated by one of our Board members. Thank you!
Dunkin Donuts gift cards came for White Horse Addiction Center and our good friend Eric! Thank you!
We threw in bags of candy, including some delicious chocolates!
We hosted a White Elephant, using fun and silly gifts from the KYC!
In some Indian cultures, White Elephants are sacred. They are an honorable gift to bestow on another. The catch is that because they are sacred, they may not be used for work. Therefore, the recipient must feed and clean up after a very big animal, but will get no help from it! Some of the gifts in a white elephant gift swap feel that way; prized, but unwanted.
2017 was a great year at the KYC. Thanks to everyone who helped out and participated! Let’s make 2018 even better! Happy New Year!

We are currently recruiting volunteers for our after school program. We need caring adults who want to support our diverse programs and share their interests or skills. Volunteers typically serve from 2:30 PM-5:00 PM once a week, every-other-week, twice a week, or ‘on-call.’ There are limitless ways with which caring adults can make a difference in the lives of local youth through volunteering at the KYC!
If you or someone you know may be interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, call (603) 569-5949 or stop by the KYC to learn more!
