BRIGHTON — The Brighton Bear Cub Club gathered again but this time learning, planning and building as engineers. This club gathers on Washington’s early dismissal for afternoons of fun and learning at the Brighton Community Building. Wednesday, Oct. 16 was themed around the engineering design model. Youth were put into teams and given design challenges.

In honor of the once Brighton Bears and the young ‘cubs’ of the Brighton community, the program is called the Brighton Bear Cub Club. It provides a safe, supervised, educational and fun environment for Brighton youth. Washington County Extension provides the programs for these early-out days.

Brighton Horizons is funding much of the program. However, enrollment fee will go toward the cost of materials as well. Scholarships are available for families upon request. Brighton Horizons wants any youth interested to be able to participate and will help make that possible.

Youth are still welcome to sign up. The Bear Cubs will meet on Nov. 20. For more information about enrolling or volunteering for the Brighton Bear Cub Club, contact Amy at the Washington County Extension Office, 319-653-4811 or through e-mail at <amygreen@iastate.edu>.
