2014 in Review


2014 was an exciting and busy year for Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley. From renovated movie theaters and Clubs to donations and a record-breaking summer, 2014 definitely deserves another look.

Youth in Dayton and Silver Springs receive first club cards: At the beginning of the year, our Dayton and Silver Springs sites received computers and scanners with a new member software for the first time. Instead of signing in on piece of paper, members were able to scan in with their very own club cards for the first time.

Newly renovated Movie House opens: What was once the Take One Movie Theater is now The Yerington Movie House. Thanks to the generosity and support of Pioneer Crossing and several foundations, Yerington’s only theater received state of the art equipment, new chairs and curtains as well as a new screen.
