BOARD OF DIRECTORS VISIT CHILDREN’S HOME SITE

Following the Boys Club’s August Board of Directors meeting, the Board members and Club department managers boarded a bus and rode to the Birdtown Community to see the progress on the construction of the new Children’s Home.  Construction of the first nine-bed home is about 40 percent complete and the construction of the second nine-bed home has started.  The new facility is located on Goose Creek Road.  (CBC photo)
