The Boys & Girls Club of Vista (BGCV) honored former board member Paul Eckert in early August for his service to the community of Vista. Club members presented Paul with artwork and an award with the form of an engraved spatula at the BGCV Pancake Breakfast fundraiser. Paul’s recent contributions to the club include helping to renovate the community room and kitchen. The Pancake Breakfast fundraiser also gave nearly 100 attendees the chance to enjoy pancakes, eggs, sausage, and coffee, as well as entertainment from BGCV members. All proceeds from the event benefited the club’s athletic programs, in an effort to keep the programs affordable at Vista Unified School District middle schools. The overall goal is to raise $6,000 for the programs by Nov. 1. For more information visit or to make a donation visit
