Fee for Verizon Customers Using Remind

Effective January 28th, Verizon customers will no longer receive SMS texts from Remind, the platform BGCWC uses for text alerts. This is because Verizon has placed a fee on Remind texts labeling them as ‘spam’, making it unable for Remind to continue sending texts to Verizon customers.


If you have a smartphone and have the Remind App, you will still continue to get alerts from BGCWC as usual, via phone notification. Verizon customers just won’t be able to receive alerts as SMS texts.

If you are a Verizon customer who has currently been receiving alerts as SMS texts, you have a smartphone, and want to continue getting updates from BGCWC via phone notification, download the Remind App.

If you are a Verizon customer who does not have a smartphone, and still want to be updated on what we are doing, sign up for our newsletter.


Please understand that this is beyond my control. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email and I will try to answer any questions you may have and I will try to help you any way I can.

BGCWC Calendars

BGCWC is doing our Annual Lottery Calendar Sale, to raise funds to support BGCWC and the Harmar Community Center.

2019 Calendar with beautiful color photos of our club members enjoying the activities of BGCWC.

3 digit number on each calendar enters you into a weekly drawing of $100.00!

How it works: If your 3 digit number matches the 3 digit nightly number drawn by the Ohio Lottery on Wednesday evening you will win $100.00. It is possible to win more than once. In 2017, 121 and 133 were drawn twice.

🎁 They make perfect Christmas gifts and support a great cause!!! 🎁

If you have any questions or if you would like to buy a calendar, talk to or email me.

Winter at BGCWC


Winter has arrived! I just wanted to give you all information on what happens here at BGCWC when schools close or delay.

In order for us to provide all day care, we have to have at least 12 kids present all day. If we do not have those 12, we are not able to pay staff, therefore, we will not offer all day care unless Marietta School are closed. Marietta is where most of our kids come from. We do not have enough in Williamstown and Warren to make that 12 kid quota.

Marietta and Warren A.M. Kids: Should either call a 2 hour delay, we will operate normally and just transport or get kids on the bus 2 hours later.

Marietta, Warren, & Williamstown P.M. kids: Should any of these schools call for an early dismissal, we will operate normally and be ready to transport or get kids off the bus when they are let out of school.

If kids are dropped off in the morning and then Marietta closes, we will be here all day for those kids, so don’t worry about it, we’ve got you covered. If Warren closes after kids are dropped off, you will need to pick the kids up by 8:30. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough kids to be able to pay our staff to be here all day. If Marietta and Warren BOTH close, everyone will be able to be here all day.


Washington County Sheriff’s Office will call a snow emergency:

    Level One: Club OPEN

    Level Two: Club OPEN

    Level Three: Club CLOSED


If BGCWC should close for any reason, it will appear on WTAP, our Website, and on Social Media. When school closes and kids will be here all day, THEY WILL NEED TO PACK A LUNCH.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at the club.
