On December 19, 2009, members of the Beach High Chess Team donated and distributed toys to under-privileged youth, as part of the May Street YMCA’s Annual toy give away, “Miracle on May Street”.
The annual program gave a book, a teddy bear, two toys and a bag of clothing to each child.
The chess players realize that life is full of challenges and hope to contribute to solving problems large and small. Mr. D. Albery, a ninth grader at Beach, commented that he wanted everyone to feel like a winner.
Players are looking forward to their inaugural season of rated competitive play.
The ninth and tenth graders are sure to bring home numerous trophies during their tournament careers, adding their names to Beach High’s legacy along with Joe Greene.
