Several members of the Boys &Girls Club of the Olympic Peninsula visited the Washington State capitol to learn about the inner workings of the state Legislature.

There they met with state representatives Mike Chapman and Steve Tharinger, both of Sequim.

The visit also was an opportunity to thank the Legislature for working on a $1 million youth recreational facilities grant for a new clubhouse in Port Angeles, club representatives said.

The Boys &Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula is a nonprofit organization chartered through Boys &Girls Clubs of America, operating two clubhouses for under-served and disadvantaged youth in the rural communities of Port Angeles and Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula.
