What is the Black and Gold Club?

The Black and Gold Club was originally founded in the spring of 1965. It was organized by a group of interested parents and citizens of Nanuet with the intention of supporting the school, the student athletes and the community.


This mission continues today and the club is always looking for new ideas and people who are willing to help. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month and everyone is welcome to attend.
