SAN BENITO — The Boys and Girls Club of San Benito has new faces.

The New Year has brought the club five additional members for the board of directors.

Board president Liz Chavez, posted an ad on Facebook in November looking for interested people to apply for a position on the board.

Chavez was hoping to increase the board of directors to reflect the growth of the club and to better represent the organization.

The club received 11 applications, five of which were accepted to join the board.

The board members began the New Year with a five-hour meeting to discuss fundraising plans, budgets and future events.
