Acorn Fun Club as the name was derived from the fruit of the oak tree (Acorn). The oak tree is a strong and firm tree on the ground so therefore our slogan is Acorn and the response is FIRM FOREVER and our motto is “Good character, tops all”. The club was formed by some youth with the brain master in the persons of Sena Paaku, the late Senyo Marcarthy, Wisdom Anani Soklo and Bismark Donkor with the wise council of Mr. Eric Selase Klu (Lenza Hotel Manager) and Mr. Godfred Alimo (Manager, S-Hoint Company Ltd.) who thought that the youth needs to be together in unity to promote good health through jogging and help one another in their little ways if they are together. The club has been existing since 2012 but fully registered with National Keep Fit Clubs Association with the Registrar General Department as a corporation and also as a business enterprise in case we want to venture into business in the future. In June, 2016 after all these registration the club was inaugurated in September, 2016 at Juapong. As at now the membership of the club is 78 (53 men and 25 women). Among these members we have teachers, nurses, artisans, fashion designers, beauticians and students. Currently the club is on the wise council of the following Patrons and Advisers; Mr. Eric Selase Klu, Mr. Godfred Alimo, Rev. Justine Dzakodzo, Mrs. Anny Oklikah, Mr. William Vuley, Mr. John Ahiati, Madam Rose Afordoanyi, Madam Ethel and Dr. Nukornu

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

On the other hand Acorn Fun Club did not relent in performing its social responsibilities. Acorn Fun Club deem it necessary and important by practicing equality in the society and putting smiles on the face of prison inmates, orphans, old aged and the less privilege in the society. As at this year, Acorn Fun Club donated assorted items, toiletries, detergents, foods and clothes to the Akuse Prisons on 11th January, 2019.

CURRENT HAPPENINGS IN ACORN FUN CLUB

Since is our mission and vision to empower the youths in farming, the club acquired 20 acres of land leased at Botikope-Kluma near Juapong.

Since the club is facing financial constraints, the club was able to start with mixed cropping of 3 acres of maize farm and one acre of coconut. The maize has been harvested and the coconut is in its 4 months of planting. The 3 acres is been prepared for the next farming season.

Thank you.
