Boys & Girls Club

To meet a critical shortage of daycare facilities, on August 18, 2002 Boys & Girls Clubs were activated at two sites after school for all six of the Scott Co. Elementary students—enrollment was over 700 for ages K-6. Having outgrown the allotted space at the two schools, an ALQI grant purchased property on which a new $3.8 million 40,000 sq.ft. facility was opened on January 29, 2006. Grades 7-12 were added and membership has grown to over 1,000 with average attendance of 150-300 per day. The 121’ x 81’ collegiate sized gym will seat 600 and may be rented. The community has use of the facility when children are not present. The facility was made possible through pledges, donations, grants and bond issues.
