Hey, kids and parents… It’s finally here!
The Boys & Girls Club of Massena has started this school year off in our very own, newly renovated clubhouse at 30 Bayley Road. We hope you’ll be part of the fun!
Club started on Monday, September 11th after school for Teens, and all kids from K-12 can start attending on September 18th.
In order to attend, all Club members need to have a new membership form filled out each year, and submitted before their first day with the $10/year membership fee*.

Wow! What a great day!On behalf of our EXTRAVAGANZA committee, we want to offer our deepest thanks to everyone who helped make the inaugural event so successful.
Saturday, May 6, was a day when thousands of amazing people came together to support the Boys & Girls Club of Massena. Vendors, partners, entertainers, advertisers, volunteers, and attendees shared their time and their treasure to help us open the doors to GREAT FUTURES.
We really can’t say thank you enough. Every dollar made at the EXTRAVAGANZA stays right here, to provide the programs and place that is making a difference in the lives of our kids — already nearly 500 members strong!
We’ve started planning for next year and we so hope to see you again on the first Saturday in May!
In the meantime, mark your calendars to get a glimpse of our newly renovated Clubhouse, 30 Bayley Road, Massena on Saturday, June 3 from 10 AM to 4 PM.
Thank you for your continued support!
Tim Lashomb & Anne-Marie Lucid, EXTRAVAGANZA Co-Chairs
