The Elizabethtown Boys Club (EBC) was founded in 1953 as a nonprofit youth sports activities organization. Annually, nearly 1,000 kids participate in EBC activities. The mission of the EBC is “to provide access to affordable, quality programs and initiatives that will enable our youth to grow and mature into productive members of our community, better students, friends and teammates.” John Fosnot, EBC Treasurer said, “Community support is the backbone of our organization. For 58 years, because of the support from our sponsors and volunteers, the Elizabethtown Boys Club has been able to provide high quality programs to the children of our community. We would like to thank Gingrich, Smith, Klingensmith and Dolan, for sponsoring the Chicken BBQ this year. ”


The EBC currently meets on the second Wednesday of every month in the GEARS Community Center located on Poplar Street in Elizabethtown. The meetings are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.
