2015 Summer Program Guide!
Our new BPD Summer brochure will be printed and ready within the next couple of weeks but you can download the digital version right now.
Click the link below or on the brochure cover (upper right) to peruse our Summer offerings.
It's never too soon to register for your favorite BPD programs. In fact, nothing hurts a program more than everyone waiting until
the last minute because a program can be cancelled if the minimum registration has not been met the week before the class is scheduled to
begin. Registration for all programs must
be completed no later than 1 week prior to the start date
of each program/class to be sure the minimum number of
participants has been met.

Boike Family Benefit
Fri, April 24 6-10 pm
"Coach Chris" Boike lost his short battle with cancer on Friday, January 23, leaving behind a
loving wife and three beautiful daughters. Everyone he encountered – including his church and
softball families – will hold his memory dear to their hearts. Chris leaves behind a legacy in
Berwyn through his dedication and love for the game of softball. He was a source of admiration
and inspiration – to players, parents and members of his coaching fraternity. He was a hero to
many of the young girls he coached, and was respected for the grace, humor, energy and
commitment he bestowed upon the softball community. He volunteered hours to the sport he
loved, but more importantly, to the girls to which he sparked that same love and dedication. His
legacy will live in the hearts of everyone fortunate enough to have known him.
