Heights Youth Club plans spring and summer activities

Peter Averil and his wife donated bicycles to HYC.

In its seventh year, the Heights Youth Club (HYC), located at 2065 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, looks forward to a busy spring and summer with many new and continuing activities designed for area youth. HYC offers five hours of afternoon programs and activities including games, swimming, bicycling, hiking, field trips, music, reading and math enhancement, self-esteem programs, nutrition classes, gardening, athletics, arts and lunch.

Peter and Barbara Averil of Chagrin Falls have donated 76 bikes thus far in their bicycle giveaway project, bringing them close to their goal of donating 100 bikes to HYC. In December, parents were delighted to come to the club and select bikes to give to their children as Christmas presents. 

The Mosaic Arts project, featuring a tile and glass mosaic designed by HYC kids and the artist Augusto Bordelois, begins its second phase in early February. 

Frank Keim and the Immortals are returning in April to perform in concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and at HYC. Members of the HYC can take workshops in bass and lead guitar, keyboard, percussion, music theory and voice from top students at the Loudon School of Music.    

All Heights young people are invited to join the Heights Youth Club and take advantage of these activities. Memberships costs $10 and is valid for one calendar year. To join, parents or guardians must complete an application and provide proof of residency. Contact the club at 216-321-CLUB (2582).
