Established by the Navy League of the United States in 1958 at the request of the Department of the Navy, the Sea Cadets are known to be the best youth organization around. And they have lots of fun, too.

Party like an animal at the Humane Society

Looking for a birthday party idea that combines fun, giving to charity and adorable puppies? Well then, you’re barking up the right tree. Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC) has long been known as a compassionate animal shelter and adoption agency for unwanted and stray animals, but how did birthday parties get added to their services? “Parties came about after a parent from our Kids’ Club asked if they could have their child’s birthday at the shelter,” explains Katherine Tutt, Education Programs Coordinator for Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC). “That was nine years ago!
