Short History of The Redding Boys and Girls Club

Labeled "Sunday at the Club" Jesse P. Sanford and a large
group of young fans in front of the fireplace.

Jesse P. Sanford on the Club's back porch with Left to Right:
David Loggie, Bobby Cole, Larry Crisman, and Jock Loggie.

Boys Club members planting Christmas Trees in 1957-58. These trees were meant to be sold in future years for fund raising but the land that they were planted on was not located on Boys Club property and when the land was sold the trees were included in the sale. The trees are now fully grown and can be seen from the lower fields on the far left.
