Huntington Beach will soon have the first Boys & Girls Club in the state on a college campus. The Huntington Valley Boys & Girls Club held a Construction Celebration on June 10 on a child-development preschool at Golden West College. The Boys & Girls Club already held its ground breaking ceremony on the project in April, but it took longer than expected to actually dig into the ground, said Tanya Hoxsie, the chief executive of the Huntington Valley Boys & Girls Club. The new facility will replace the existing child development center on a 3-acre portion of Golden West College at 15744 Goldenwest St. The facility is the first of three phases of the organization's $7-million Building Dreams campaign, which will eventually bring a gymnasium and two-story Boys & Girls Club to the campus.

Over the last two years, producers Alec C. Marken and Sarah "al Nour" Baxter have hosted seven Bands and Bellies shows, which bring together musicians, dancers and other artists. Of those shows, only one was a for-profit endeavor. The rest of the time, Marken and Baxter have diverted all of their net proceeds to nonprofits or charitable causes.

"The intensity and level of quality of work is so high," he said, covered in a paint-spatted smock as he gestured to the gallery. "It's so professional. " Golden West just opened a new art show, "Pressing the Limits," which showcases 40 prints made by a quartet of New Mexico-based artists: Michael Costello, Willis F.
