In 1965, a group of people were at the the Ocotillo Lodge and thought a club was a good idea. After much discussion the Bouse Booster Club was organized and meetings were held at the Ocotillo Lodge until enough funds were raised to purchase property where a club house would be located. Eventually, enough was raised to purchase the lots at the current site and the Old school house was moved onto the site. For a full Historical overview ... Click HERE
The Bouse Boosters Club now has three major fund raisers annually. 'Spring Fever' in March, Founder's Day in November, and in February the Desert Brushes Art Club have their Art Show with the Booster Club serving Food.
The Community Hall is also rented to groups for different activities, art classes, weddings, dances, etc MEMBERSHIP is open to anyone over the age of 18 years with dues of $5.00 annually. Elections for the Board are held in January each year with paid up members entitled to vote.
The kitchen has been slowly renovated with new commercial appliances and added a permanent food permit to serve the Breakfasts once a week and other meals that we serve throughout the year. The boosters have an Ice Cream Social once a month and contribute to the community with donations to the schools and churches and by having activities to benefit the community such as game night, square dancing, art club, line dancing, arts and crafts, quilting and many other activities. The Booster Hall is available to rent for private parties and functions for a reasonable cost.
The club still lives up to its original purpose as stated in the bylaws adopted in 1971. The Boosters are still run by volunteers and depend greatly on the volunteer community to function and bring activities to the community of Bouse. Please consider becoming a member of the Bouse Boosters and volunteering your time for the good of the community.
One feature the Booster Hall has that is considered somewhat unique is the painted blocks throughout the interior of the building.
The club started selling painted blocks on the interior walls to help pay for the construction costs. today the blocks show a community membership and the variety of places that members have come from. Each block was painted by local artists
